For moderator elections, this script greatly helps vet and compare candidates.

Features:

  • Lists candidates in sorted order. Find him/her in a repeatable, predictable, location every page visit.
  • Click on a jump-table row to instantly scroll to that candidate.
  • Save a bookmark that opens the page to that candidate's entry, every time.
  • Like, Hide, or Reject a candidate. Save your data between page visits and between tabs.
  • Provides direct links to a candidate's entry on the Stack Exchange Moderator Candidate Statistics (SEMC) page. (Unfortunately, that site has been down for a great many months now.)
  • If you open one of those SEMC links, the script automatically scrolls to the targeted user (even while the SEMC page loads and settles).
  • If you downvoted a candidate in the primary, then those users are auto-rejected when you visit the primary page.
  • Works on all SE Election pages. (Not tested on Non English sites, but should work except for any formatting issues.)

    GM-4+ is crap and will not be supported at this time.

Reference:

  • To get to the election pages, add election/ to the site's home address.
    For example: http://biology.stackexchange.com/election/ .
    This goes straight to:

    • Any current elections, or
    • It shows the last election if the site has had only one, or
    • It shows a list of all elections that have been held for the site.

  • Also, find a list of all site's last, or current, elections on the Stack Exchange Moderator Candidate Statistics main page (when/if it comes back online).
