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!

Jameth...just because I like his campaign posters.
jamethjameth on May 23rd, 2008 02:58 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I made none of them! I have my constituency to thank for all of the photoshop goodness.
wickedgood: Bangwickedgood on May 23rd, 2008 01:23 am (UTC)
The voting process is very poorly designed.

I'm annoyed that an obvious famewhore/spam jockey is probably going to win, while a few people who put a little bit of thought in their candidacy's completely wasted their time on this nonsense. The winner is supposedly the 'people's' representative? Too bad there's not a panel of three, so at least one of them isn't a complete wanker.
Emilia Rothschildetherealshores on May 23rd, 2008 01:25 am (UTC)
A panel of three would be a much better idea, I agree.

I am going to be disgusted if jameth wins.

jameth has a sense of humor that CLEARLY many people cannot see.

He loves LiveJournal more than ANY OTHER USER EVER.

And how much did he help raise for catslvdmb's little wrinkly beast cat thing?

Who's the next most likely winner next to jameth?

Top 3 so far:

jameth: 761 (23.6%)
squeaky19: 381 (11.8%)

That doesn't necessarily answer your question, but that's the data.

I hope everyone who is BAWWWWing right now really do leave LJ forever over this.

I voted for mrflagg and jameth. I couldn't give a fuck what either of them stand for. I did it for the lulz.

And I like mrflagg.

Sexually.
