How does voting work?

This final voting phase encourages delegates to cast votes early, as delegates’ voting power will eventually decay if they do not cast their votes within the first 7 days (i.e. by April 19th!).

Delegates can split their votes across multiple nominees, with 1 token representing 1 vote. All voting is carried out via on-chain smart contracts, which can be accessed via the Tally UI, here: Tally | Arbitrum Security Council

What makes a good candidate?

Choosing the right Security Council members is crucial to the security of the Arbitrum ecosystem due to the authority granted to them. Accordingly, delegates should elect candidates wisely, and consider the Security Council’s responsibilities and values, as well as key attributes to look out for when evaluating candidates, as described here: Security Council Members: Duties and Principles

There was a Governance Call on March 25, 2024, to discuss the attributes that make a good candidate. This meeting recording can be accessed here: Security Council Elections - Who are the candidates? (2024-03-25 15:05 GMT) - Google Drive
