The results were prepared by cosmikdebris on 24 August 2020, who thanks all voting members for their participation and interest in the Foundation.

Since only 4 people stood for 4 positions the election this election is considered pre-determined. However, per the Bylaws, an election was held anyway. After discussion, the mob agreed by consensus that the top three finishers shall be appointed to a full two year term, while the fourth finisher shall be appointed to a one year term to fill the vacancy left by DuceMoosolini's resignation.

The following candidates are elected to a two year term ending in 2022:

The following candidate is elected to a one year term ending in 2021:

Technical notes[edit]

Apparently OpenSTV is confused when an election is run with four candidates competing for four open seats. When running in this configuration it only makes one pass and ends the election with only the first two candidates elected. To fix this, we added an additional dummy candidate called "Other," to force OpenSTV to execute a proper run and get the full order of all votes cast.
