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!

I don't understand. What did jameth do that is blatantly unsuitable?

Re: Relevant links
Same as in any other election system: they serve out their term and then the voters replace 'em.

Re: Relevant links
A bit of unsolicited advice:

From an outside observer who doesn't really know any of these candidates from a hole in the wall? You're coming off a little petty, attempting to characterize any of them as "joke candidates" or unsuitable. I wouldn't vote for you based on that.

Re: Relevant links
Considering that the voters have already shown they consider you to be unsuitable, since you are dead-last, and jameth has over 20 times the votes that you do, a comment such as yours is really childish. Dude, get over your butt-hurt. You haven't even matched the number of votes you had to get nominated, so your support has not grown at all.

Don't be such a sore loser.
