Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The bulletin treats the election as one big thing, ending when the election is over:

But really there are three phases; nomination, primary (optional) and election. It's not something you just visit once. I think the Nom, Primary and Election should each have their own items with their own end times, only showing the current phase on the bulletin.

If they were split out I would know "Oh, it's nomination so I should go nominate myself!" or "Hey, it's voting time!". This would make it much easier to know when I need to pop in for each part of the election. If I pop in for the nom, I might be annoyed that I can't vote, and forget when it's time for the actual vote.

Yes, 99 notifications isn't enough! – animuson Jun 12 '12 at 16:41
@BenBrocka I can see when this may be easier. I think that this would be useful thing for elections. – Bonzo Jun 12 '12 at 17:19
