First ever LiveJournal User-Representative Election  
PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU VOTE!!!

Eligibility
Those eligible to vote in this poll are:
-Users with accounts created before March 11, 2008
-Users who are not using Cyrillic language services (there is a poll for Cyrillic users at lj_election_ru)
-Users who have accounts with validated email addresses


Voting
Users should select their first choice, second choice, and third choice candidates from the drop-down list.

Determining the winner
The poll will be closed at 9:00 p.m. PDT Thursday, May 29, 2008
-If a user has more than 50% of the first-choice vote, that candidate will be declared the winner
-If no user has more than 50% of the first-choice vote, we will begin using an Instant Runoff process. The user with the lowest tally for first-choice vote will be eliminated, and the second choice candidate on those ballots will be substituted as first choice. This process will continue (drop lowest candidate, reassign to next vote, tally again) until any user has more than 50% of the vote.
-If all ballots are exhausted and no candidate has more than 50% of the vote, we will return to the first round and award the election to the candidate with the most 1st choice votes.

Member Term
The new Advisory Board member will be announced by the end of the day on Friday, May 30, 2008 and will begin their one-year term of service on June 1, 2008.

THANK YOU!

It says "results visible to none", but as soon as I voted, the results were visible. If that's the way it's supposed to be, then never mind me.

'Results visible to none' means that you cannot see who voted for what but you can see the current numbers of votes.

Teesside Snog Monster: whoopsjiggery_pokery on May 22nd, 2008 11:06 pm (UTC)
You've only gone and changed the election rules, you varmints!

What you once said:

Tallying the results
After the polls close on May 29th, we will determine the winner of the elections in the following way:
-If a user has 51% of the first-choice vote, that candidate will be declared the winner
-If no user has 51% of the first-choice vote, we will begin using an Instant Runoff process. The user with the lowest tally for first-choice vote will be eliminated, and the second choice candidate on those ballots will be substituted as first choice. This process will continue (drop lowest candidate, reassign to next vote, tally again) until any user has 51% of the vote.
-If all ballots are exhausted and no candidate has 51% of the vote, we will return to the first round and award the election to the candidate with the most 1st choice votes.

What you say now (with my added emphasis):

-If a user has more than 50% of the first-choice vote, that candidate will be declared the winner
-If no user has more than 50% of the first-choice vote, we will begin using an Instant Runoff process. The user with the lowest tally for first-choice vote will be eliminated, and the second choice candidate on those ballots will be substituted as first choice. This process will continue (drop lowest candidate, reassign to next vote, tally again) until any user has more than 50% of the vote.
-If all ballots are exhausted and no candidate has more than 50% of the vote, we will return to the first round and award the election to the candidate with the most 1st choice votes.

The change you've made is entirely sensible, absolutely correct and makes the election process better. Thank you for changing it; you have done the right thing. (I am convinced what you say with "more than 50%" is what you meant when you wrote 51% at the time.) Still, please don't think that we aren't going to notice when you change the rules, and please get it right first time, next time.
blahblahblah, whatever: rmkathrynrose on May 23rd, 2008 01:55 am (UTC)
Good catch. Incidentally, the profile page for the community still says 51%
