Become a Member of the OTW and Vote for the 2024 Elections!

It’s almost election time! Being a member of the OTW means being able to vote for its Board of Directors. This helps affect how projects such as the Archive of Our Own – AO3, Fanlore, and Transformative Works and Cultures – TWC are run now and going forward. This year, our election for the Board of Directors will be held from August 16 to August 18. (Access the full Elections Timeline for 2024).

In order to vote, you need to be a member of the OTW by midnight UTC on June 30, 2024 (What time is that for me?). Please note that your donation receipt will be dated in your time zone, not UTC. If you donate on June 30, there should be a note on your receipt indicating which election you are eligible to vote in. That means that you have to have made a donation of US$10 or more between July 1, 2023 and June 30, 2024, AND have chosen to become a member when donating. In order to become a member, you need to select “Yes” in response to the question “Do you want to be an OTW member? ($10 minimum donation)” on the donation form. If you’re unsure whether this applies to a donation you’ve made, please contact our Development & Membership team.

If you participate in this voter registration drive, you will receive a specially designed icon, only available during this drive. Thank you for your support of the OTW! Register to vote and donate today!

    I set up a recurring donation in the past, and I would like to double-check whether this means I will remain a member while donations continue. Do I need to contact the Development & Membership team if I want to verify my status?

    • Marty (OTW News Post Moderator) commented:

      Hey Terry,

      Yes! Please reach out to our Development & Membership team to verify your status. They will be able to confirm if you are listed as an active member.

    Where can we find information about the candidates?

    • Marty (OTW News Post Moderator) commented:

      Hi Usernotfound,

      Candidates’ bios are not available yet! They will be released after 23:59 UTC June 23, 2024 (What time is that for me?) on the elections website. They will also be posted here (on the OTW website) and on Archive of Our Own.
