Internal Election: Governor Nominations Closed

Hello fellow Pirates

We are now well into the campaign period for the internal by-election for the three vacant seats on our Board of Governors.

Polls will open 6th July at 18:30 and close 13th July at 18:30. The voting system used is STV.

The following nominations have been received and are displayed in order received:

  •     Sam Mills, seconded by Harley Faggetter
  •     Noah Stride, seconded by Matt Johnson
  •     George Pender, seconded by Mark Chapman
  •     Jeb Hedges, seconded by David A Elston

If you face difficulties voting, contact [email protected] so they can check your account settings. If you know anyone who wants to #VotePirate in this or future elections, convince them to #BeThePirate and join!

Candidates are encouraged to blog to the website, chat on discord and start a forum post to give the voters a bit of a profile and to win over votes during this campaign period. Remember that politically, nothing is wasted, there is no shortage of work to be done in order to create a free culture, so if you don't win this one, at a minimum you'll make a good impression for the plenty of other things to get involved in!

Good luck!

Yours piratically
