The results were announced on 19 June 2017. Please consider submitting any feedback regarding the 2017 election on the election's post mortem page.

Instructions Edit


We ask voters to leave no more than 4 non-duplicative, brief and strictly relevant questions. Questions which do not directly relate to candidacy in the FDC Election will be removed at the discretion of the elections committee. Please be respectful of the time that candidates must spend answering, and the time other voters must spend reading.

Please do not use the question pages to link to other pages with more questions (to ask further or non-eligible questions, contact the candidates on their talk pages or via email). You can ask your question in any language; if necessary, the election committee will try to find translators.


It is strongly suggested that answers to questions do not exceed approximately 1600 characters per question (not counting spaces). Please do not link to another page containing an extended answer, although relevant links used for descriptive purposes are fine. Due to the number of voters and candidates, this is necessary to keep these pages readable, informative and therefore useful for voters.

Directory Edit
