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!

READ THE FUCKING PLATFORMS.

Lj finally gives its users an opportunity to change the current state of misscommunication, so instead people vote for the one person who does not even have a step-by-step plan to do so.

Quite honestly, the best reason of all to vote for one of the so-called "joke" candidates is to listen to people bitch and moan about the so-called "joke" candidates and how their SRS BSNS candidate has a step-by-step plan to do x, y, and z once they gain an advisory position with no actual authority.

Oh, Internet. You never stop making your own gravy.

"Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything
Jos. Stalin, also K. Rove.

We're supposed to trust LJ? "Advisory board" is a joke and so is this poll. "Jameth" is obviously the chosen boy--and he has trolls who post visually obnoxious campaign rubbish--so I'm voting for someone who has actually made intelligent, thoughtful posts.
voonplatz on May 23rd, 2008 03:56 am (UTC)
What do you mean by "troll"? If you actually read some of the posts by those who endorse Jameth, you would find that they are thoughtful, valid, clever and visually amusing. The way I see it, by "troll" you mean anyone who posts something that you disagree with.

It's laughable to think the winner will have any actual, real power. I don't really like jameth, but his clear victory probably won't affect me.
