The purpose of this thread was to allow users to nominate others. The nomination period is now over and the thread is closed. The list of candidates can be found on the election page.
Since the Stack Exchange election model doesn't match the process that MathOverflow had previously used for moderator elections, this thread is for community members to nominate others as candidates for the election as we have done for the previous election.
To nominate someone, post an answer with their names and a link to their user profile. Also, add a short blurb to encourage the user to accept the nomination. (This will also prevent your answer from being automatically turned into a comment.)
If you are nominated and you wish to accept the nomination, follow the link at the bottom of the election page to register as a candidate (a.k.a. "nominate yourself") before October 7th at 20:00:00Z UTC (or 4:00 pm EDT). If you wish to decline the nomination, you are encouraged to leave a comment indicating that.
Note: Please use this other thread if you wish to discuss the election process itself.
