I'm wondering .........
Who counts/checks the votes? The board themselves or independent supporters?
And
Could said checking be influenced by the board's preferred candidate? By which I mean are they looking for a figurehead to deliver the sermon from on high or would they entertain a potential boat rocker?
I honestly can't see the club fixing the result but it's an interesting question and you and I could be the independent adjudicators.

I think it's a farce that he's standing again but he has loads of clout with Hibs fans. A very influential fellow.

However, People to the Power hopefully.

I agree. I think he'll be very good at mobilising his support and anyone splitting the HSA vote would be in with a decent shout.

Malcolm Milne would also be a decent candidate, am I right in saying there is only one place up for grabs as Tracey has blagged another year?
I agree, I like Malcolm, sit beside him at many away games, but K has the Power!

I'd hope the club wouldn't either but we live in strange times.
Would the count have to go past Ruth Davidson before being made public? (A touch if sarcasm better posted in the cooshed perhaps)

If FD wins will Tracey then stand down? Farcical process.
An excellent question.

I understood Tracey was asked to stay on to provide a bit of continuity, so that it wouldn’t be two ‘newbies’ at once, and then retire after a year so there would always be an ‘experienced’ fans rep. That has some logic to it.
If Frank is successful then presumably there is no need for Tracey to provide that continuity……… and presumably a further election would be needed to provide the ‘newbie’ to accompany (and communicate on social media for ) Frank?

Or is that too logical……….

From a governance perspective Frank shouldn't have put himself up anyway.
The fact that he broke his promises to be 'higher profile on social media' (couldn't be much lower really) suggests that he's not really 'fit and proper' to represent fans on the Board. There is enough mistrust of the Board at the best of times without this carry on.

I don't understand how Tracey standing down would help anything? The point was to move to electing one rep each year so that the incumbent rep could support the new one. If Tracey stands down it'd be back to two people standing down simultaneously in two years time? Or are we saying that there should be one rep elected now for a single year term?

Fair point - but the alternative is that we have the same two carrying on, but with only one being elected..........

Aw bugger it.
The whole thing is a loady pish anyway.

Yes, I saw that. Pretty much rules him out as a candidate.

The irony is that after she’s completed her free year she could stand again like frank has.

Pretty crass.
Anyone standing should say what THEY are bringing, not denigrating the 'opposition'.

Aye.
It's all a bit messy isn't it.

I wisnae going tae bother voting on this again because I personally think the whole thing is a bit of a nonsense TBH but I see Kieran is standing and He's a good lad and if he wants tae give it a go I'll vote for him.

That Macar is an idiot and starting that nonsense should IMO see him emptied from the running. That said I dinnae think Frank Dougan should have been allowed tae put himself forward again.

Just discovered I’m blocked from viewing Macars tweets, have honestly no idea why. I wouldn’t have voted for him anyway, I find him to be a bit of a twat, that anyonebutdougan banter confirms my gut feeling

Agree Mark - That boy is one of the few people I have blocked from almost every Hibs social media group I am on.

In fact make that the ONLY person I have blocked in Hibs groups.
