Elections are coming up in September for Terrapin Base command 2010-2011. Here is the basic outline of what's to come:

Phase one: Nominations from September 1-10
Phase Two: Candidate Q&A September 11-20
Phase Three: Voting September 21-30

Please vote and make your voice heard.

The Charter's outline of elections can be found here:

# Nominations for offices may be made starting 12:01 A.M. EST September 1st of each year and continue until 11:59 P.M. EST, September 10th. September 11th through September 20th are reserved for candidate Question and Answer (Q&A) sessions. Members may post questions for the candidates to answer. On September 20th candidates will post final statements. Voting will begin on 12:01 A.M. EST September 21st through 11:59 P.M. EST September 30th, after which no more votes will be accepted. All nominations and voting must be on The Rebel Legion website. Nominations, Question/Answer, and Voting for LCO and Legion Administrative Council Positions will be in the Election Forum. Nominations, Question/Answer, and Voting for Base/Outpost/Detachment COs can be in their respective forum areas. The COG will oversee all election processes. The COG will archive all election results. Every Rebel Legion member with full ACTIVE status may vote. Members that are placed on the RESERVE status may not vote until their status has been reactivated by their Base/Outpost CO. Both ARCHIVE (inactive) members and Forum-users have no voting privileges.
Notice of upcoming elections will be posted on the forums and be sent out by a mass email one week prior to the election by The Captain of the Guard. However, notification of any elections to individual members of a unit is ultimately the job of Base/Outpost/Detachment Commanders and Regional Captains.
# All nominations must be seconded. A member may nominate themselves and that will require a second and third nomination. Standing officers must post their desire to seek another term or decline to seek another term (no response is considered a decline). No second is required for standing officers.
# If no nominations are made for a particular office by 11:59 P.M. EST September 10th, then the officers holding these positions will remain in office. If a standing Outpost or Base Commander does not seek another term and no nominations are made for that unit, the XO must accept or decline being promoted to CO. If the XO declines (no response is considered a decline) then the Legion Council is empowered to appoint a new CO or to consider having the unit absorbed into a neighboring unit due to lack of leadership."
