What's the status on the SO moderator elections?

According to the blog, the election was planned to take one week.

Are there any plans on when the results will be published? Will the results be published, or just who the new moderator is?

Or did I overlook a big election thread?

They're still rigging the votes, which takes some time to appear fair. – random Feb 9 '10 at 2:25
If the election is already over, then I didn't win. That's all I know. (Not that it would surprise me.) – mmyers Feb 9 '10 at 4:54
You wuz robbed @mmyers! – random Feb 9 '10 at 5:25
Looks like I finished fourth, if I read the files right. There were a lot of people who voted for Jason Cohen and didn't pick a second or third choice. – mmyers Feb 9 '10 at 5:37
@mmyers I think we ought to demand a recount ;) Hehe. – Sampson Feb 9 '10 at 6:07
Actually, I didn't read the files right. I was fifth. Guess I'll tell my lawyer to drop the Supreme Court appeal now. ;) – mmyers Feb 9 '10 at 15:36

Huzzah! Thanks for releasing the actual vote counts! – Adam Davis Feb 9 '10 at 6:02
+1 If I'm reading that correctly, I came in third. Awesome! Do I get a cheap disposable ribbon? :) – Sampson Feb 9 '10 at 6:06
Full transparency FTW! Thanks. – jjnguy Feb 9 '10 at 6:06
@jonathan, you will always be #3 in my heart.. – Jeff Atwood Feb 9 '10 at 7:02
@JeffAtwood: Comforting :) – Sampson Feb 9 '10 at 13:33

They printed out the User Voting page and are throwing darts at it.

Too bad none of them have good aim. We can expect one to hit the paper by Wednesday.

Then we will know who will become the next Moderator.
