Summary: Mathematics Educators Stack Exchange will begin the nomination stage for an election on October 31, as your “graduation” election.

The timeline:

  • On October 24, a Community Manager will post a question collection post on Meta, so that the community can post questions they'd like to see the candidates answer.

  • Starting on October 31, users can nominate themselves. The top questions collected on the previous week will be compiled into a questionnaire on the election page, so that potential moderators can answer them.

  • The existing moderator team will need to run in the election if they wish to keep their positions.

  • On November 7, if there are 4 or more candidates, the election will move into the voting phase. If not, the CM Team will extend the nomination period for a week. If, at the end of that extension period, there are still fewer than 4 candidates, we'll simply appoint the candidates who've nominated (and aren't already pro-tem mods), and we'll default to considering this a "pro-tem election" just to try to bring the total number of moderators on the site up to 3 (for full details of the process, see the announcement on Meta Stack Exchange). (There's a small chance we'll need to remove a nomination.)

  • If the election moves into the voting phase, we'll announce the results on Meta on November 15 (or November 22, if we need to extend the nomination period).

If you have any questions about the process, please post them in an answer here.

    $\begingroup$ Thank you! I hope we get some good candidates. As I mentioned in a previous question I won't be running again, so people should feel good about putting their names in. You won't be running against all incumbents. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 19, 2022 at 18:50
