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!

Open to: All, results viewable to: None

Strange, I placed my vote and all the results show clearly on my monitor.
Seems like jameth is enjoying a landslide :P
i might like you better if we slept together.shutter on May 23rd, 2008 07:49 am (UTC)
it means you can't see who individual usernames voted for.
mcgonagalls_catmcgonagalls_cat on May 23rd, 2008 05:35 am (UTC)
I don't know any of those members, but I know COPPERBADGE understood how to sort out the mess you guys created last year, and I want COPPERBADGE on the Advisory Board.


Also, Cambler's icon is offensive, showing lack of good judgement for this position... and Jameth should be dumped for spamming the responses posts.

I bet all the people who cry about Jameth - you know, the guy who actually has an organized campaign based on people liking him - are all Obama supporters IRL and totally fail to see the irony of this.

You're silly if you don't.
Honestly.

Jade: brian and justin textmossy_jade on May 23rd, 2008 09:57 am (UTC)
I'm just wondering if I should be able to see the result of the poll, or if that's a malfunction? Because it says "results viewable to: None" but they're definitely there.

JAMETH

I HOPE YOU ARE HAPPY BEING THE 'JOKE' CANDIDATE

YOU HAVE SINGLE HANDEDLY DESTROYED THE DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM WHERE RALPH NADER AND (VOTE!!) RON PAUL HAVE FAILED. MY FAITH IN THE OBJECTIVE NATURE OF THE LJ ADMINS HAS BEEN SHAKEN TO THE CORE.

GO AHEAD, IT'S A TWO PARTY SYSTEM. THROW YOUR VOTE AWAAYYYYYYYYY


ALSO: CAPS LOCK IS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL
BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO STEER THE FUCKER.
qfemale: MOD - One step at a time for world dominqfemale on May 23rd, 2008 11:11 am (UTC)
VOTE QFEMALE - HELP ME ACHIEVE WORLD DOMINATION!

(and for those who care, you can check out my journal to read my 'platform'. Why is this called platform? It's just a POST where I replied to some questions I was emailed - nothing fancy!)

Sorry, no banners in this comment.

If only, my dear, if only. Sadly, this seems to be exactly the popularity contest we hoped it would not be.....

I said somewhere above, why am I surprised? Bush got elected, twice....

It appears to me that this is quickly turning into nothing but a popularity contest, that I will obviously not win. But if you want to vote for openness I suggest you read my platform over at vote_squeaky and vote for myself

I wonder what the numbers would look like without the sockpuppets? Too bad we'll never know.

A Quark of A Different Spin.adameros on May 23rd, 2008 04:49 pm (UTC)
Wow! Comparing a liberal gay man who does civil service and volunteers to a self centered right wing bigot.

If that is the kind of reasoning you have, it's time for you to change the bong water.

Annoying not to be able to vote on this one, when the people on this poll have more relevance to me, than the Cyrillic poll... :S
