Voice your opinion on this candidate (talk page) (?/?/?); Scheduled to end You're almost there. All you need to do now is substitute the time parser function (it isn't as scary as it sounds, edit the page and inline comments will guide you). This will fix the end time and prevent it from constantly changing. Remove the <!-- and --> around subst: in the template (as well as this comment) once you transclude this request.
