Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Looking at the page at, I read the following phrase:

712 voters were eligible, 0 visited the site during the election, 112 visited the election page, and 0 voted

It is wrong, as there are at least two users who visited the election page, and the site: the candidate, and me.

The candidate clearly visited the election page, and also visited the site when he answered FROM_UNIXTIME(o.created,'%d-%m-%Y') in where clause gives error.



The user also visited the site before applying for the position.

I gained the Caucus badge two days ago, and I answered Change style for the reply link in comment.tpl.php.

It could also be that election is referring to the last phase of the elections. If this would be the case, the number of users who visited the election page should be zero too, as we are still in the first phase.

Is the number of users who visited the site during election wrong, or does "election" refer to the last phase where users vote?


Election excludes the nomination phase, basing on the information given in the right side, where election is said to begin on October 22 (tomorrow), while the nomination started on October 15.


In such case, the phrase I am referring should not be shown in the nomination phase.
