Following the Charter, the task is to:
- set a date for the election (polling thread here in the forum) in 2 months from now. I propose January 22nd, 2023. I will make an announcment on Monday evening.
- select an independent non-Council member to audit the final vote results. Any proposals or volunteers? Please contact me.
- we (the current council) are in charge of finding candidates, according to what the Charter says:
Okay so?The Chair and current Council will endeavor to find ten or more candidates within the time frame of two months after the announcement of elections. If nine or more people run for election, then voting will be held to fill the eight vacancies. Each voting constituent of the forum will vote for two less candidates than the total number who run for election. (ie. If ten people run, then each voting member will vote for eight candidates, etc.) If exactly six, seven, or eight people run for election, then all of those who run will be appointed to the new Council, and no voting will be held. If less than six people run, then appointment of a new council will be postponed until a time that a minimum of six active candidates can be found.
