This will be one of three second chance round elections this week. What we'll do for the second chance election is a Yes/No vote requiring the greater of 6 or 75% of the votes to induct. The election will be limited to the listed nominees. The elections will only be open for a week--but there will be at least three or four days for discussion and new nominations. You can abstain from an entire ballot (player or contributor), but if you vote in that portion of the ballot, only the guys you expressly vote yes for get credit for a positive vote. The others in that section of the ballot will be considered to have gotten a "no" vote. There will be no limits on how many nominees you can vote for . I will also provide the nomination discussions for the nominees. The deadline for suggesting nominees is twelve hours before the election begins.
In this case, the election will not begin until Saturday, May 12 at 7 am EDT, and will end at 7 am EDT May 19. Nominations close 12 hours before the election begins, or May 11 at 7 pm EDT. Ballots not cast within the stated election time frame will not count.
The Indians have the following already inducted:
Inducted Player (6): Jay Buhner, Alvin Davis, Ken Griffey, Jr., Randy Johnson, Edgar Martinez, Jamie Moyer
Inducted Contributors (1): Lou Piniella
The list of nominees at present is:
