Staff will review the nominations made and a final list of Candidates will then be posted. The nominated candidates will then have a series of debates scheduled at different times between the dates of February 1st through February 12th, 2021. Once finished, these candidates will go forward as the final candidates to be voted on by the community when the voting opens in-game on SATURDAY, February 13th, 2021 at 4pm PST / 6pm CST / 7pm EST / Midnight (February 14th) GMT.
