Action Required for Voters who have not participated in the 2021 - 2023 SOB Elections

If you have already successfully voted between 2021 and 2023, ignore the following.

As of two years ago, the election platform changed their email rules. For you to vote on CIVS, you have to opt in to receiving emails from CIVS. This is necessary, as you will get a personalized voting link via email directly from CIVS. Please opt in to receiving emails from CIVS at https://civs1.civs.us/cgi-bin/opt_in.pl otherwise you will NOT be able to vote! Everyone on the voters list will also get a personal email on this. If you have already opted in by then, you can ignore that email.

Candidates (order of announcement)

Board Seats

The squeak community does its best to elect 7 board members each year. In the event that less than 7 board members run or less than 7 are elected (see Voting for None of the Below) the next largest ODD number of board members will be elected to the board. The requirement for an ODD number of seats is to ensure that tie votes can be broken. For example, if 7 candidates run and 6 are elected, the highest 5 ranking board members will serve on the board.

In the event that during the voting period of the election a candidate becomes ineligible or withdraws from the election for any reason, the votes for that person will be ignored as if they were not part of the election.

Voting for None of the Below

Voting for "None of the Below" allows you to vote for the people you want most without having to vote for candidates that you do not prefer. Candidates that get fewer votes than "None of the Below" are not elected to the board. In the case that "None of the Below" is chosen above the 7 candidates needed, the board will have fewer than 7 members for the year. When voting starts you will be asked to rank the candidates in the order you wish to have them added to the board. If you don't have a preference between two candidates rank the users with the same rank. Ranking "None of the Below" above other members indicates your desire to vote against the remaining candidates. DO NOT select "No Opinion" as this does not rank the remaining candidates at all. Select a lower rank than "None of the Below" to vote against them. If you have questions please contact voters@squeak.org for more information. Your question and answer will be posted to squeak-dev.
