THIS POST HERE Has a lot of info about the election process here on StackOverFlow
The first phase of the election process ("nomination") is pretty obvious.
The last phase of the process (the actual voting) is pretty obvious.
The middle phase, "The Primary" is confusing. I didn't really comprehend the full details of what is acceptable and unacceptable voting during this phase.
This year, The elections page for the primary phase says there are 30 candidates to fill 3 positions.
Of the 30 candidates, I thought that 7 of them wrote the most sensible presentations, so I upvoted those 7.
Is that okay? Do I need to limit my votes to 3 at this stage?
Some of my favorite guys are clearly not going to win (which is okay). I just want to make sure that it's okay to "vote" for more than the number of open positions.
I also notice that just about every candidate gets "yes" and "no" votes. Should I vote down a candidate whom I think would act in ways that are contrary to my beliefs and thoughts?
