My fellow Fedorians,

It's time for the Fedora 21 elections. In fact, we are already a little

In order to make these elections a success, we need your help:

      * First and foremost, we need you to vote.
      * Tell others community members to vote.
      * Ask questions in the elections questionnaire.

        ahead. You can shape the future of Fedora and it's community!
      * Encourage others that they feel would represent Fedora well to
        run for election.
      * Attend the townhall IRC meetings and ask the candidates your
      * Volunteer to host the townhalls. We strive to have two meetings
        for each body, that means six in total. I would appreciate your

If you want to help out of have any further questions, please don't
