2. Nominees with a commercial interest in Maemo or Hildon Foundation, such as working for Nokia - or any other company involved with software development - must declare their interest when advertising their nomination. Failure to do so may result in the HFC, declaring their nomination invalid and so bar them from standing in the current election.

5. Each community member eligible to vote gets a single ballot.

7. There is no limit to the number of times a board member can stand for re-election. 

Your Chairman
