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!

Who are the joke candidates?
The person who: Ugly Bettydancesontrains on May 22nd, 2008 10:45 pm (UTC)
Look at their platforms and the comments here and you should be able to work it out :)
Cotton Candy Explosion!girlvinyl on May 22nd, 2008 11:47 pm (UTC)
Is there like a guide to this somewhere? I am seriously having a hard time understanding who is for what and who is kidding and not, etc.
The person who: Luna puffdancesontrains on May 22nd, 2008 11:49 pm (UTC)
Their own words are linked in the latest news post, and there's some fairly interesting discussion in ljunited. You might want to look at Enclclopedia Dramatica as well- some of them have entries there.

I think the founder of ED knows who is and isn't associated with her site better than you do.

Also,
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<ljunited">') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

Also, <ljunited"> censors some candidates and endorses a candidate who supports censorship. I think that's a serious breach of trust.
mokie: wonkymokie on May 24th, 2008 05:53 am (UTC)
I've seen a bit of the censorship, but not their candidate's support of censorship. Point me at it, please?

I think you and your friends need a refresher in what the First Amendment is really all about.

Start here.

Notice the operative word: Government. Government is forbidden from restricting free speech.

Even so, there are exceptions, most notably hate speech and speech which may incite a riot.

PRIVATE PARTIES have NEVER been held to the First Amendment and that includes corporations.

The way you talk, you seem to think it would be okey-dokey for some lunatic to smash down your front door just so they could stand in the middle if your living room and blather about anything they'd like.

Saying that people support censorship simply because they ban trolls from their journals and communities is ludicrous. It's their "virtual living room" and they have that right.

Wow, no encyclopediadramatica for me, thanks. I can't stand that site. It is just too gross and wrong. I will check the ljunited comm, thanks.

Who are you supporting?
