Nominations for Elected Positions

You may self-nominate. If you wish to nominate someone else, please consult with that person ahead of time. Wiki nomination pages carry additional details about the nominee which the nominee is expected to write.

Candidate Interviews

We are collecting a list of questions, which will be given to each candidate to answer before voting period begins as part of campaign in Community Blog. Please see the July 2016 Elections Questionnaire and add your own. Note: not all questions will be posed to the candidates. Questions may be edited. Candidates may choose to answer (or not) as they see fit. For an inspiration you might see the last Elections Questionnaire from Nov/Dec 2015 Elections.

IRC Town Halls

No Town Halls are being held this time. Instead we're running campaign and part of it are Community Blog interviews. It's hard to schedule Town Halls (different schedules, timezones etc.) and it prolongs elections itself.
