Elections on most sites have the candidate's individual manifestos, as here on Veganism and Vegetarianism.

In addition, every site where I've voted in an election has shown the candidates' answers to various sample questions: "What would you do if a user who contributes good answers were to frequently get flagged for their comments being inappropriate for respectful discourse?" - questions of that type which show the type of moderator that the candidate is likely to be - or at least wishes to become.

Not here however.


What was the basis for the decision to omit these questions and answers for the candidates in this election?

Veganism & Vegetarianism is still in Beta. As such this is a Pro Tempore Election and if you read that question from Meta Stack Exchange it has the following text:

For these elections, the candidate questionnaire is an optional feature that individual sites can choose if they want (example here). If sites choose not to have a questionnaire, we encourage voters to ask their questions on the site's meta use the and tags. Moderator candidates should monitor meta for these questions.

So I guess you just ask your question here if you have one.
