+A Question

During
a general conversation with a Wikifriend, someone asked me a
question. I’ll treat that question as “anonymous”. The question is:

Thank you for this message, Tito.

The WMF has released voting statistics vide this link: https://meta.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_elections/2021/Stats

I have extracted the statistics of the Indic-language communities and given them below. From these project-wise figures we can see that hardly anybody has voted.

May I request all of us to speak to all our Wikifriends and get them to vote, if not done already.
