Voter registration for the November 2016 Special Election
If you did not register to vote in the June 2016 election, or if you wish to change the e-mail address you used last time, you need to register via this page to participate in the November election. Unfortunately, due to issues with emailing via the wiki, we are using a different registration system, in which applications (but not email addresses) must be public. This is to ensure that each voter really does maintain an unblocked Citizendium account.
To ensure that all ballots cast are from eligible voters only, Citizens have to register to vote via the main wiki, and can do so during the election. The registration period has now begun and closes 24 hours before the election ends, at midnight UTC on Friday, November 4th 2016.
Changing your e-mail address
If you registered to vote in June 2016, you do not need to register again unless you wish to change the email address used to vote. If so, follow the procedure below, but also state clearly in your email which address you previously used. If you can't remember if you registered, wait for the election to commence to see if you receive a ballot, or email the Election Committee via firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Between October 30th and November 4th 2016, click the 'edit' link next to the title of this section, just above this line, which appears when you are logged-in.
- Below the lines after this paragraph, on a new line, simply type *~~~~ (below the names of anyone else who may have already registered) ...and save. You don't need to write a letter or make a declaration, and do not include your email address - this page is public.
- Now immediately send an email from the address that you wish to use to vote with to: email@example.com. Simply state that you are registering to vote and add any other necessary details (e.g. if you are changing your address since the June election.)
- You will be sent confirmation via both email and your Talk page.
- That's it! Ballots will only be sent to the e-mail address that was registered. If you don't receive a ballot within 24 hours once the election has started, check your spam folder and then contact the Election Committee.
