Stack Exchange is revisiting moderator elections with the community to discuss what they think needs to be improved over on this meta post. I'm not sure how closely our community members actively monitor SO Meta; I only noticed because it's in my currently featured sidebar.

I'm bringing it up here because our last moderator election (2021) required some extra work to get enough candidates. I don't know if the nature of elections had anything to do with our difficulties, but one of their state goals is:

Participation in moderator elections is declining. Can we reverse that by changing how elections are run?

Election participation has also come up in a some answers and comments. More generally, it's good opportunity for us to share thoughts & concerns about moderator elections with the larger SE community and the community managers. Thanks considering it.
