Timeline Updates – Voter Eligibility, Q&A, and Chats

The 2016 election season is now in full swing! Read on for important updates to this year’s timeline.

The period to become eligible to vote in the 2016 Election has been expanded and is now August 24, 2015 to August 23, 2016, inclusive of both dates, UTC. If you donated US$10 or more to the OTW during this time and opted to become a member, you will be able to vote. If you would like to become eligible, donate here. If you’re unsure if you’re eligible, contact Development & Membership.

Thank you to everyone who submitted questions for the candidates! We have compiled these into two sets, and the candidates will have a week to complete each one. The first set will be posted on this site August 17th, and the second will be posted August 24th.

In addition, we will be holding two candidate chats. These will give the public a chance to both interact with the candidates and see the candidates interact with other. The first chat will be on Thurs, Sept 1 from 1300-1430 UTC, and the second will be held Sat, Sept 10 from 2200-2330 UTC.

Watch this space for more information on where the chats will take place, and, of course, for more news about the 2016 Election!
