Reviewers will be elected via a Snapshot vote in Special Voting Cycle #9b. These Snapshot votes will be Approval Votes, wherein each delegate would be able to vote for as many nominees as they see fit, for each Council sub-committee, with equal voting power. The nominees with the highest percentage of approval votes will be elected to the Council.
While the code of conduct stipulates that delegates may not vote on their own candidacy in elections, in the case of approval/ranked choice votes, delegates may vote for themselves, so long as they also cast votes for the remaining elected positions.
Example: I can vote for my own candidacy on the Growth Experiments committee, so long as I also cast 4 additional votes (a total of 5 votes, as there are 5 open positions on the sub-committee.)
Self-nominations need to be posted here by 1/11/23. Special Voting Cycle #9b will run according to the above procedure from 1/12/23-1/18/23. Season 3 will begin on January 26th.
