Previously, there had been an entry in the privileges list page for "Nominate moderators".

While that entry was outdated, it is no longer present, and has not been updated or replaced with another entry in the latest changes to the privileges list.

Should there be entries in the privilege list for "Vote in moderator elections" and "Self-nominate for moderator elections", or is this covered elsewhere, on another page?

I think this issue should be bubbled back up to the front page, especially now that badges are involved with elections. A member needs 150 reputations in order to participate.

This makes some sense, but the Just In Time info about elections seems more ideal. Seeing you've earned a privilege you can use once a year seems unhelpful when the one-a-year event also shows you the requirements. It would be very easy to forget this privilege, it almost seems like noise since it's not always (usually) an actionable priviledge – Ben Brocka Jun 18 '12 at 15:42
@BenBrocka: That assumes that moderator elections are only once a year. – Nicol Bolas Jun 18 '12 at 18:40
@NicolBolas they are extremely rare, except the case of SO I do believe they are only once a year (and were on SO until demand has proven it necessary). In reality it's often rarer than a year on non-SO sites, many betas go over a year with no election whatsoever. The point is it's extremely rare, not an every day or even every month task. – Ben Brocka Jun 18 '12 at 18:46
