Summary: Ebooks Stack Exchange will begin the nomination stage for a special election on June 14 to bring in two more moderators.

For full details of the process, see the announcement on Meta Stack Exchange. The timeline:

  • Starting on June 14, users can nominate themselves. Users can also ask questions on meta for potential moderators to answer. (Use the and tags.)

  • On June 21, if there are three 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 still less than three candidates, I'll simply appoint the candidates. (There's a small chance we'll need to remove a nomination, but I doubt that will come up.)

  • If there is an election, I'll announce the results on meta on June 29 (or July 6, if we need to extend the nomination period).

(Note for current moderators: there's no need to nominate yourself even though you'll likely get an email saying you should. The system assumes the first election is a graduation election, which would mean moderators would need to be re-elected. This isn't that sort of election.)

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