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

Any community member with at least 150 reputation may vote.

Can they vote for themselves? (Since, the voting type in primary phase looks as same as the voting for questions or answers where we can't vote for own posts.)

Need clarifications about this for both Primary and election phase.

Candidates can vote for themselves in the election phase, but in primary phase, they can't.
