Please don't nominate people more than once. Plenty of people out there to consider other than those that have already been mentioned.

Nominations do NOT need to be seconded. Quoting from TIP 17:
  • Each person can nominate up to three candidates for the next OCT election. Duplicate nominations will count against the limit. Nominated people must themselves be in the nominating pool. Nominations do not require seconds.

    What are Caroline Meeks and Andrew Grummet's statuses?  They tied in the last election, and the decision was for Andrew to take the seat for the first 6 months and Caroline the second 6 months.  Are they switching now?  (It's actually a bit less than 5 months since the June 5 final count date of the last election.)  Could one or both of them run for election?  Sitting OCT members can't, but this is a special situation.  It seems to me that, for example, Andrew could hand his seat to Caroline (a month early) and then run outright.  Either way, since both are active and contributing, it would be a good idea to give both of them the opportunity to be elected.  I'm nominating whichever of Caroline Meeks and Andrew Grummet is eligable.

    Andrew took the first 6 months and I took the second. So after this election I will be on OCT.  Andrew is nominated (repeatedly) and it seems to me he can run just like someone who's seat is expiring normally can run.  No reason to turn it over early.

    Nominations are now CLOSED

    Good nominees, this will be an interesting vote!

    Caroline, I'd write all nominees individually an e-mail, just in case they miss this thread and therefore don't get back to you.
