  2. Are the votes weighed by rep?

1 Answer 1


Are there still going to be 3 mods?

Yes, from the election page:

moderator candidates: 7

moderator positions available: 3

Per another meta question, all current pro-temp mods must run again, meaning the 3 positions up for current election are the only 3 going forward.

Are the votes weighed by rep?

No, from the election page again:

We will calculate the winners using OpenSTV with the Meek STV method, which automatically weights users' votes in the way that does the most good for the candidates they have selected, in order of preference.

So the votes will be weighted by the order each voter chose, but not by the rep of voters or candidates.
