I just got a notification telling me to vote in the election.

When following the link however, I'm redirected to here (an error page). Presumably, this is supposed to be the election page.

It seems to be fixed now.

    \$\begingroup\$ @Dennis Ya. The last thing we need is people moving on and forgetting to vote, which I totally won't do. A new notification might not hurt. \$\endgroup\$ – Carcigenicate Feb 12 '18 at 20:07

    \$\begingroup\$ The entire election page is bust codegolf.stackexchange.com/election should display past elections if the current one isn't runing. On the other hand I just got a badge for looking at the non-existent page. \$\endgroup\$ – Ben Feb 12 '18 at 20:08

    \$\begingroup\$ So there is no correct link? The title made me think that this post is just about the notification. \$\endgroup\$ – Andras Deak Feb 12 '18 at 20:11

    \$\begingroup\$ I've been to two other SEs and /election works just fine for them (I get a normal page saying there's no election). PCG's page still throws a 500 \$\endgroup\$ – Machavity Feb 12 '18 at 20:12

    \$\begingroup\$ This has been posted to Meta.SE and it turns out cooking.SE has a working election page in nomination phase (PPCG and Crypto are in Election phase, Crypto has been for 7 days). \$\endgroup\$ – SEJPM Feb 12 '18 at 20:59

    \$\begingroup\$ This is bad. Really bad. Elections are supposed to follow rules that were established before. Things like that hurt the legitimization of the result, because the result might be different if people could have voted. \$\endgroup\$ – Johannes Kuhn Feb 12 '18 at 21:10

    \$\begingroup\$ @JohannesKuhn Well, I'm hoping this will be taken into consideration. That's why I'm hoping they send another alert when it's fixed to remind people, and perhaps extend the time to vote if this takes a long time to fix. \$\endgroup\$ – Carcigenicate Feb 12 '18 at 21:11
