This meeting is open to public attendance. Voting is open to Altonimbus Entertainment Members (Kumoricon staff).

Starting this year, we are updating our process for online nominations and online Q&A. Most of our online elections activity is moving to our staff-only Discord server, but we are continuing to host a forum thread to allow non-staff to nominate and ask questions.

The process for conducting the in-person elections meeting is not changing. The election meeting continues to be open to the public. For each election, there are candidate opening speeches, a period for questions and comments for the candidates, and voting by secret, written ballots.

Members must be present in person to vote, except for proxy voting. If a member cannot attend the meeting, they may designate another member as their proxy, in either of two ways: (1) The member not attending the meeting may authorize another member using the online proxy authorization system, or (2) The proxy attending the meeting may bring a printed authorization form to the meeting signed by the absent member.

Elections and eligibility are governed by the bylaws of Altonimbus Entertainment and the meeting process by our Elections Process (staff login required).

We encourage staff to join our Discord if you have not already. To join, please read our introductory page (staff login required). If you need assistance, please email

More detailed information on nominations, questions and comments, and the anonymous question/comment process are publicly available on the elections forum thread.
