I got a notification about voting in the community moderator election, however when I went to the page, it had actually ended, both 1 hour ago.
Is this due to the voting being skipped?
This was my fault and something I need to fix our process. In a perfect world, the election would automatically be ended if there aren't enough candidates. Unfortunately, that bit is still a manual process. In the future, I plan to push back the start of the voting portion a few minutes before it's supposed to start if it looks as if it won't be necessary. Then, if there aren't enough candidates, I can end the election so there won't be a notification. (I'd also need to remove the community event in the sidebar at that time.)
I'm sorry for the confusion.
There is always a notification box and link on the main page. There was a week for self nomination, another week for candidate questioning.
If there had been more than one candidate there would have been a week for voting. However since this is a pro tempore election with only one candidate it ends as soon as voting is opened. (in this case it actually took abt 20-30 minutes as it is still manual)
