The 2017 Community Moderator Election is now underway!

Community moderator elections have three phases:

  1. Nomination phase
  2. Primary phase
  3. Election phase

Most elections take between two and three weeks, but this depends on how many candidates there are.

Please visit the official election page at


for more detail, and to participate!

    $\begingroup$ My understanding is that if there are no nominations, or only one, typically the election is cancelled and Stack Exchange tries again later. $\endgroup$
