We are electing our Pirate Council in April. Positions include Captain, First Officer, Quartermaster, PR/Media Director, Activism Director, Swarmwise Director, Web/Info Director, three Arbitrators and two representatives to the US Pirate Party. The election schedule is:
- Nominations due by Monday, April 8th
- Ballots sent out by Friday, April 12th
- Ballots due back for vote counting by Tuesday, April 23rd
We will use the same voting mechanism we used in our previous election. Voters will be emailed a randomly generated id that only the voter will know. Once the election is done, we will delete the ids. In this way, we can ensure that only supporters can vote, while also maintaining the secrecy of votes.
