Voting is open for the 3 referenda around the election procedure for Maemo community council elections.

A wiki page has been created for each referendum, where arguments for & against each of the options can be listed. For the moment, these pages are skeletons, but feel free to debate in the Talk page, and perhaps add some arguments for & against in the main page (but they will be heavily moderated to avoid flame-wars).

A reminder of the 3 referenda:

  1. Election procedure for the next Maemo community council elections : The choices are the status quo in the election procedure document (25 karma + 3 month), or removing all requirements. The council is recommending a vote to remove requirements.
  2. Election procedure for future Maemo community council elections : The choices are the status quo, lowering the karma requirement to 10, and maintaining a 3 month requirement for accounts, lowering the requirement to 10 *or* 1 year since account creation, whichever comes first, or removing all requirements of karma and account age. The council is recommending lowering the karma requirement to 10, and maintaining a 3 month account creation limit.
  3. Counting method : Three choices are proposed: first past the post, preferential voting using single transferrable vote, or reweighted range voting.

Voting is open now , until midnight UTC next Monday, the 23rd of February. As we used to say in Ireland in the '80s, vote early, vote often!
