The Polls Are Open!

Calling LJ users to the polls—voting starts today, June 22, for user representatives to the LiveJournal Advisory Board! Voting takes place in lj_election_ru for Cyrillic-language users and in lj_election_en for all other users. Here's what you need to know to be an informed voter:
  • Polls are open from 9:00 a.m. PDT and MSD, June 22, to 4:30 p.m. PDT and MSD, June 26.

  • Only accounts created before March 31, 2009, are eligible to vote in this year’s election.

  • Only one account per registered email address may vote.

  • The candidates in lj_election_en are webqatch, vichan, kylecassidy, jameth, and daphaknee. Click on the username to see a candidate's nomination statement.

  • If no candidate receives a clear 51% of the first-choice vote, the winners will be determined using an Instant Runoff process.

  • We'll announce the winners and the results Monday, June 29, 2009, after the results have been examined for accuracy and veracity, and (if needed) run through the Instant Runoff tallying program.

  • The new user representatives to the LJ Advisory Board will be seated and begin their terms on July 1, 2009.

Now get out there and vote!
