Last year I wrote a short blog post titled OSMF should vote more often…… after I have seen the rise of the number of OSMF members just before the election. This holds true this year as well.
As the most recent numbers are as of Nov 16, also members not yet eligible for voting at this year’s election are included.

I don’t think you can conclude the election is the primary driver for membership increases. Both this year and last year we held membership drives starting around State of the Map. SotM increases interest in OSM and the membership drive highlights the importance of engaging in OSMF. Maybe we should hold membership drives more often.
