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's supporters have been bragging about using sockpuppets. Isn't it cheating when his side do it, too?

Personally, I have over fifty journals and I voted once, because I don't cheat, however good the cause.

We, at least, back up our claims with some sort of proof. Please provide a screen shot or a link to where a Jameth supporter has "bragged about using sockpuppets."

Oh, and of course, one person doing it to show that it can, in fact, be done DEFINITELY equals bragging.

That sounds kinky, I may have to explore it further.

Wow, I keep seeing the equation of "I haven't done it" and "I wish I could" and "I'm not sure I see the harm" as actual admissions of having actually done anything. Though I will grant you that the last one has some oomph behind it, when coupled with the rest of the paragraph at the above link, it doesn't say anyone actually DID ANYTHING. Of course it's being talked about. Everyone is talking about it. Talking about it just might include people offering their opinions on the subject. Offering opinions =/= having acted, even if said opinion is FOR the action. This anon clearly states they didn't participate in it and no one in the thread does either.

While I agree that voting with your 70 long-ago-abandoned RP journals is not the best thing to do, I can not agree with this "one person=one vote campaign".

Even the anon himself says he'd find something hinky in voting 70 times.

Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if they were. This whole election is pretty bogus, in my opinion, from the position being voted for right down to the fact that the poll results are out in the open for all to see and influence the vote.

That, and fandom has everything from 9 to 49-year-olds. So, yes.
