After 3097 voters from 146 Wikimedia communities voted, the results are 76%

expectation is that the Board of Trustees review process will complete in
March 2023. We will update you when their review process is completed.

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in this

This list includes the people who voted in 2022 and those voters who
provided comments so we could strengthen and clarify the Enforcement
Guidelines into the version the community supports.

I especially want to thank the Drafting Committee, who took the time to
reconvene and review community feedback from the 2022 Enforcement Guideline
vote and continue to engage with the community and feedback throughout

Finally, thank you to the people who voted and shared feedback during this
voting period. We look forward to reviewing the report of the feedback and
discussing next steps with the rest of the Board.

Shani, on behalf of the CAC.
