  • Just logged in for the first time after my recent summer holiday, saw the election notification, and then saw that I was too late! As a general point, is it sensible to have elections during holiday periods when many site users are likely to be away for a prolonged time (look at the poor level of visits/participation in the election)? I'd argue that election periods should be at least 1 month long, and should avoid July, August and December, January, to avoid the main summer holiday periods in both hemispheres, and to increase the chance that slightly less frequent site users can participate?
