Firstly, I apologize for using the community space as a forum for non-H/D Hols news... but at the same time, this effects every single one of us and, also, this endorsement is largely in support of legomymalfoy, who created this community. I chose to keep this fest on LJ after the kerfluffle because I felt our content wasn't in violation of the TOS, plus I genuinely LIKE livejournal, and now, more than ever, it is important we be represented by a fandom individual to the new owners of LJ.
legomymalfoy -- who is currently in the lead -- and vichan are both H/D shippers. As stated, legomymalfoy created this fest and community, and I feel we owe it to both her and ourselves to show our support. The third fandom candidate with a strong showing is someone with whom I am less intimately familiar but am told is solid: rm.
There are more than 1,000 watchers of this community, and we could help make a further dent. The other leading candidate and his supporters are leading a smear campaign against legomymalfoy AND FANDOM, and alleging that fandom is using sockpuppet accounts to jack up the vote. So, please, do not use duplicate journals to vote and justify their argument. One LJ user, one vote, and use it towards a fandom candidate!
Read on for more information, which you may see circulating your f-lists, under the cut.

Here are summaries of their election platforms. The three fannish candidates with the best chances of winning (and their platforms) are listed here.
