There's a moderator election going on on Bicycles Stack Exchange, and according to the homepage, it'll end in two days (2018-11-27 20:00:00Z):

However, the election page itself states it's going to end in five days (2018-11-30 20:00:00Z):

This is probably caused by extending the nomination period due to a lack of candidates, though this happens more often and I'm not sure if it was a problem for that specific election.

  • I don't know if they manually add the dates on the homepage (Or election page), so if they do it was probably extended without their notice or some sort of typo, if it was it would be an easy fix. If it is not manually put in, then I think it is a bug they should fix. – Stack Exchange Tornado Nov 25 '18 at 22:01

  • For Android.SE this has been reported here: Upcoming event will have ended in -7 days. – Sebastian Simon Nov 25 '18 at 22:43

I extended the election and I done screwed up. (I thought I had a procedure written down for this, but looking again I don't. Good news: I didn't ignore the process! Bad news: guess I better write it down now.) Fortunately, I was able to make some stickers with the new date:

I voted sticker

In case it's not clear, I also screwed up the end date. It should be on a Tuesday as is tradition and per our process.
