Voting

There are four candidates for two available seats. While it might not be likely that all preferences are necessary, you are encouraged to use all votes. If you vote for the same person twice, this will not help that person's chances, it will only throw away one of your votes and deprioritize the remaining ones, so please cast unique votes.

Voting using STV (Single Transferable Vote) started on Apr 02, 2024 15:00:00 UTC. Voting will be open until Apr 16, 2024 15:00:00 UTC. Tie breaking will be at the discretion of the prior branch RMs.
