Season 6 Elections: Code of Conduct Council

Season 6 Elections: Code of Conduct Council

If renewed, Code of Conduct Members will be elected by the Token House in Special Voting Cycle #23b, which runs from June 13th - June 19th at 19:00 GMT.

Those that would like to nominate themselves for these roles must fill out the below template and post here by June 5th at 19:00 GMT.

Anyone is able to self-nominate at any point, but there is no guarantee to be an election until a budget renewal proposal passes a Token House vote on May 29th.

The Foundation will facilitate a town hall with all eligible candidates the following week, before elections take place.

There is no minimum voting power requirement to be a Member but all members must have completed GravityDAO’s conflict resolution training (online or live) by the start of Season 6.

Representatives should only serve in one elected position per Season. There are no term limits for representatives, but they may be implemented in the future if the need arises.

What Does This Mean for Delegates?

Token House Code of Conduct Council Members will be elected via approval voting in Special Voting Cycle #23b (full details in the Season 6 Reflection Period Guide.) Approval voting is a mechanism that allows each delegate to vote for as many nominees as they choose with equal voting power. The nominees with the highest percentage of approval votes will be elected to the Council. Please note this policy in Optimist Expectations:

In the case of approval/ranked choice elections, 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.)

Please note the above outlined voting mechanism is subject to change depending on Council structure and number of eligible candidates.


As part of the Path to Open Metagovernance, we’ll be experimenting with polls this Reflection Period.

What additional measures would you take to ensure adequate assessment of candidates?
