I noticed that MO is currently holding moderator elections, and I'm curious whether or not I will be able to vote. I've looked through the privileges list, and I do not see mentioned there a "participate in an election" privilege of any sort. How much reputation is needed to do so?


1 Answer 1


The sidebar on the election page gives the answer:

In the election phase, up to 10 candidates advance to final community voting. Any community member with 150 reputation may vote in the election.

  • $\begingroup$ @CameronBuie I've corrected that, it's written in the sidebar but on the election page, and not the nomination page, I got a bit confused between those two. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Of course, it means any member with at least 150 reputation. I hope. $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 8, 2013 at 12:16
