The issue of holding fair elections is largely technical. The long-term solution will likely come from [Stack Exchange management]. Still, bring up these issues in meta. There is a lot of room for innovation. Discussing the criteria of a great moderator is important and picking out potential candidates is a great way to introduce outstanding contributors to your community. And [management] are completely open to appointing temporary Moderators when someone’s contribution makes them a standout choice for your community’s human exception handler.
I think ЯegDwight ought to be our first moderator here, at least pro tem. He's the one who created the original proposal, and he has demonstrated his mad mod skills on EL&U and GL&U. I have a lot of respect for him. He has a vision of what this site ought to be like and I think it is a good one.
Having spoken with her in chat and read her Meta questions, I would like to nominate WendiKidd as one of the moderators. She has made a distinct effort both to answer users' questions and try to make the site successful. Some of her Meta posts have aimed to:
I'm familiar with the workings of SE sites and have been around SE for a little while now. I would like to see this community grow and ELL become the canonical resource for people who are learning English.
I'm also on an Australian Timezone (GMT+10 [AEST]) which means I am active when those who are around the Atlantic are usually asleep, so there would always be someone floating around.
If you'd like to know more feel free to ping me in chat or ask in a comment.
I would like to nominate myself for moderator. I was a little late in commiting to the Area 51 proposal, and I wasn't able to promote the sight, as I would have liked. However I believe I am a good responsible user, who has what is best for the community in mind. I don't have the most reputation on the site, however I have enough to show I am active. I also believe I have done a good job, in helping to moderate the site with my somewhat-limited powers.
