Wesnoth Inc Board Member Election - Voting

Post by Pentarctagon »

As per the nominations thread, it is now time to begin voting for the three Board positions. The candidates are:
  • Soliton
  • Elvish_Hunter
  • Pentarctagon
  • Hejnewar
  • Lord-Knightmare
Those eligible to vote in this election are:

Code: Select all

All eligible voters will have two weeks, until June 17 UTC 00:00, to submit their vote. Votes must be submitted by sending a forum PM to one or more of the current Board members (myself, Soliton, and Elvish_Hunter) stating which of the candidates you are voting for. You may vote for as many candidates as you want, however keep in mind that voting for all candidates is effectively like not voting at all.

If there are any questions, feel free to either post here or contact me via forum PM/Discord DM.

Question: what happens in case of a tie, meaning that the candidates with the 3rd and 4th highest vote count have the same amount of votes? I re-read paragraph V of our Constitution and there's no provision for that situation.

I'm not sure. We'd probably need to have a runoff election with just those two.

Thanks to everyone who voted; for anyone who didn't vote, feel free to tell us why by forum PM, because we'd like to reduce the abstention rate if possible.
