Stewards/Elections 2016/Introduction

  • New stewards are elected roughly once per year. Stewards perform technical tasks on all Wikimedia wikis based on community consensus and on the Stewards policy: changing user access, viewing user information in cases of abuse, and so on (see details).
  • Candidate submissions were open from 15 January 2016, 00:00 (UTC) until 28 January 2016, 23:59 (UTC). Questions to the candidates can be submitted until the election concludes.
  • The voting will begin on 08 February 2016, 14:00 (UTC) and end on 28 February 2016, 13:59 (UTC). Candidates must meet the criteria and obtain at least 30 votes in favor with an 80% support ratio. You can track the results with collected statistics.
