The rules for the Council election as well as details on how to vote for this election are available in the Council Elections Archives[1]. In any case, here is the quick procedure on how to vote using votify: * If you're eligible to vote in this election, log in to * Type votify --new council-201206 to create a new ballot file * Edit .ballot-council-201206 file in your home directory and rank the candidates * Once you're finished, use votify --verify council-201206 command to verify the validity of your ballot file * If everything is okay, use votify --submit council-201206 to submit your vote. Don't forget your vote doesn't count until you submit it. * If you run into problems, you can either work them out yourself using votify --help or contact election officials and ask them for help The elections for the Council include the pseudo _reopen_nominations candidate. If the pseudo-candidate '_reopen_nominations' appears in 7th place or higher those candidates that rank above '_reopen_nominations' will be the current council. A second period of election will be opened for the remaining council seats. No third period of election will be opened in the event '_repoen_nominations' ranks higher than the candidates necessary to fill the council[2]. In case there's a need to fill a seat during the council term due to a retirement, a new election must be held to fill that seat.
