Polling Opens for the Zcash Community Grants Committee Election

Members of the Zcash Community Grants (ZCG) committee are elected by the Zcash Community Advisory Panel, and serve a one year term. One committee member’s term is expiring at the end of June, and another member has volunteered to resign their seat and stand for re-election in order to facilitate staggered elections.

Last month, we invited candidates to express their interest in serving on the committee.

Three candidates are standing for two seats on the committee. Here is the list of candidates, with links to their candidacy announcement on the Zcash community forum: 

Note that Beth withdrew her candidacy on 21st June.

Last Friday, the candidates took part in a Community Call, during which they introduced themselves and answered questions from the Zcash community. You can watch a recording of the call on Youtube.

Today, we opened a Helios poll of the Zcash Community Advisory Panel (ZCAP), which will run until 30th June. The poll will be decided by approval voting for two members out of the three candidates. The results will be released on July 1st, and the two candidates with the most approval votes will become the new ZCG committee members with immediate effect. 

ZCAP members should check their mailbox for instructions on how to vote. 

Good luck to all the candidates, and thank you for volunteering to serve on the ZCG committee!
