NYTM held its first election for its governing board last year, when proto-blogger Anil Dash and NYU computer science professor Evan Korth won the vote. A few things are different this year: only one position is open, and there are four women running while last year there were none.

Since Dec. 6, 21 candidates have been electioneering. Voting closes at 3 p.m. Check out the candidates and their platforms.
