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 Questionnaire

We are collecting a list of questions, which will be given to each candidate to answer before the IRC Town Halls. Please see the questionnaire and add your own.

The answers are available in 2 formats: Plain Text and OpenOffice table.

Each group participating in the election will host two Town Hall forums on IRC. Each will last one hour, or less if there are no further questions.
