The first round of elections had a lower threshold for time you had to be
registered (30 days). This round has 180 days from article 3.9. See the
bylaw point below

Thus, for the next individual elections for 2013, there does not appear to
have been a significant surge in membership since the foundation launch from
companies and therefore the membership will not be subject to a further arms
race in the 2013 round.


3.9 Voting and Proxies.

(a) Each Individual Member whose effective date of membership is earlier
than thirty (30) days after the effective date of the filing of the
Certificate of Incorporation of the Foundation ("COI Effective Date") may
vote immediately after he or she becomes an Individual Member. Each
Individual Member whose effective date of membership is more than thirty
(30) days after the COI Effective Date shall be eligible to vote 180 days
after the effective date of his or her membership. Each Individual Member
shall have one vote at any meeting of Individual Members and for election of
the Individual Directors, the Individual Members shall have the option to
vote for Individual Directors on a cumulative basis.
