Summary: Engineering Stack Exchange will begin the nomination stage for an election on September 19th, 2022, as your “graduation” election!

The timeline:

  • On September 12, 2022, I'll post a question collection post on Meta, so that the community can post questions they'd like to see the candidates answer.

  • Starting on September 19, 2022, 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 September 26, 2022, if there are 4 or more candidates, we'll run an election. If not, I'll extend the nomination period for a week. If, at the end of that extension period, there are 3 candidates, I'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 there is an election, I'll announce the results on meta on October 4, 2022 (or October 11, 2022, if we need to extend the nomination period).

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