votes cast per day

The 2022 election of the English Wikipedia's Arbitration Committee closed on Monday 13 December 2022, with about 1,570 votes cast in the secret poll (a very similar number to the 2021 election). Twelve candidates contested the eight seats to be filled.

Having completed their previous two-year terms, Barkeep49, Primefac, CaptainEek, and user:L235 were re-elected to serve for a further two years. Other candidates elected for two-year terms were SilkTork and Guerillero, both former arbitrators; new to the committee (and also for two years) are GeneralNotability and Moneytrees.

Sdrqaz and Robert McClenon (a non-admin) achieved over 60%, which would have qualified them for positions if the eight seats had not already been filled. Candidates neither elected nor achieving a threshold for a seat were Tamzin and BoldLuis. The Signpost thanks all candidates for having volunteered to serve the project as arbitrators.

Additionally, seven sitting arbs will complete the second year of their terms.

Just over half the votes were cast on day 1, and 83% of the votes were cast by the end of day 7 (2021: 84%). There was a slight uptick on the final day. The full results table was published on 21 December, at Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee Elections December 2022.
