Topic: EVC elections

It is time to elect a new Election and Voting Coordinator. After Robert Longtin, our former EVC, left the site, I have taken over that function, being the former deputy EVC myself. However, that was only a temporary solution and now the time has come to elect a new EVC.

Now is the time to put forward candidacies for the office of EVC for the period of one year. So if you want to be the new EVC, please announce your candidacy here.

If you want to know anything about what the job exactly involves, feel free to contact me and I will be happy to explain.

It is important that candidates step forward, because I myself am not planning to run for the office of EVC: I simply have too much on my plate right now to handle it.

Re: EVC elections

I nominate Ash, he's one of the most politic-y types I know. smile

Thanks for the nomination, but I must withdraw. I have my sights set elsewhere. wink

Re: EVC elections

As per request I will explain a bit about how being the EVC works. Basically you have to run all elections and official votings on the forums, which sounds like a lot more work than it is.

When Robert Longtin started as the EVC, he set up an account at BallotBin.com. The EVC will use this account for all votings and elections. The principle is very simple: you can create a voting on the site and choose how people can vote. For example: can they vote for only one candidate, or can they choose a top 3? Adding or removing members from the list to whom the ballot should be sent is also very easy, so no worries there. Besides setting up a voting, the EVC also must decide the period in which people can vote. When all this is done and the ballots have been sent, the EVC basically has to wait until the voting period is over, although it is advisable to send a reminder to people who haven't voted yet at some point. When the voting period is over, the website basically gives you the results, showing you how many people voted for which candidate (in for example the elections for a new GC).

So that is in short how it works being the EVC. If anybody needs anymore information, just let me know. Also, I'd be happy to help the new EVC settle in and help him or her out with the first (couple of) elections.

Re: EVC elections

I will definately accept the nomination for EVC.

Re: EVC elections

As Interim EVC, I will formally open the nominations period; this will last until 19 June 2014 at 1700 GMT.

So far, Zuzutoo is the only accepted candidate.

Re: EVC elections

Nominate Ash please.

Re: EVC elections

I will check if Ash accepts his nomination and if he doesn't, we'll go to voting.

Re: EVC elections

Ash has declined his nomination.

There is no specific requirement for a campaign period and as we are a) two months overdue with this and b) have only one candidate, I am going to move straight to voting.

Re: EVC elections

If we have a quorum of active members I don't see a reason to drag an uncontested election out three weeks. Let's move on to the Main Event. Certainly those interested in running for GC could get started making shameless promises and kissing interns (I meant babies).

Re: EVC elections

I'm hearing talk there is already a list of GC candidates, yet I've not seen anything regarding this. What's the skinny, guys?

By the way, these are the results of the 2014 EVC Elections:

Congratulations to our new Elections and Voting Coordinator!

Re: EVC elections

Two Abstentions. Interesting. I abstained because it was a sure result, and I felt I would be the "Token Dissention". I'm actually glad Zu's in. ^_^

Re: EVC elections

Thanks. Always good to exercise the freedom of choice even with only one candidate.

Re: EVC elections

Ah, my misreading, only four nominations so far (3 were by me). The string of nominations were for EVC. The memory of the post remains, not always the category it was posted in.

GC Nominations not accepted yet:
Misty
Mischa
Jason A
Spart

Spur your favorite candidates into the arena. Phoenix has a tremendous potential. Who has the vision to realize it? Nominate now!
