Based on the discussion on today’s TSC call I created a patch to update the election website with the fall TSC/PL/TL election dates: https://review.opendev.org/c/starlingx/election/+/806059
Please let me know if you have any concerns with those dates here or by leaving a comment on the review.
For the TSC elections part we have 3 seats this round that are up for re-election, but we also have two open seats with a 6-month term that we need to fill. We will hold interim elections to attempt to fill these seats. The proposal for the second round of election is to run it right after the regular fall election round. In that sense the dates for the interim election would be:
* Interim TSC Nominations: November 16, 2021, 20:45 UTC - November 23, 2021, 20:45 UTC
* Interim TSC Campaign: November 23, 2021, 20:45 UTC - November 30, 2021, 20:45 UTC
* Interim TSC Election: November 30, 2021, 20:45 UTC - December 07, 2021, 20:45 UTC
Would that work for the community?

> We also plan to run an interim TSC election period this time around as we have 5 seats for the TSC and the terms of the current 3 members are up in H2, 2021. We will run the regular election period to (re)elect these positions and we will also run an interim election to fill the remaining 2 seats for a half year period to grow the group back to the desired number and to support the staggered election process. The interim elections need separate dates to avoid confusions with the regular process.
> Please think about your preference about the election process to make sure that people are available to submit nominations as well as to be able to vote in the election process.
