    $\begingroup$ This means that you have a day or two to gain the remainder of the needed reputation. I doable task by all accounts! $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila May 7 '12 at 6:20

    $\begingroup$ You need eight votes on answers or 16 votes on questions. If you write three-four decent answers you should garner at least eight votes. In two or three days? That is completely doable in my opinion. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila May 7 '12 at 6:22
  • $\begingroup$ Hopefully, it will materialize. Thanks for that info. $\endgroup$ – Amitabh Udayiman May 7 '12 at 6:23

    $\begingroup$ Correction: You have nine days. Even if you get one vote per day you can still catch the last day. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila May 7 '12 at 6:25

    $\begingroup$ @AmitabhUdayiman: Ask a question on $\pi$ or $e$ -- it always works. ;) $\endgroup$ – Salech Alhasov May 8 '12 at 18:43

From the moderator election format and design thread:

"Any user in good standing with 150 reputation may vote in the primary."

The same threshold applies to the election phase.
