The 2016 OSM US elections aren't even over yet, but it's never too soon to start thinking about 2017. :) 

To that end, I wrote a diary post about why OSM US should switch to using Single Transferable Vote for its elections, like OSMF does. All of the current OSM US candidates support STV to various degrees: some enthusiastically, others cautiously (those who hadn't heard of it before) but none were strongly against it when I asked their opinions. With that kind of consensus, I hope that OSM US can switch to using STV before our next elections in 2017.
