If your population increased very rapidly, you may have to wait a year or so for the election to happen. How long has it been since your population hit 50?

I have the similar situation, immigrant wave increased my population from 42 to 61, but no mayor is elected. Tried leaving the game running for a season, still no mayor.

HOWEVER when I replace my expedition leader with another one, the new mayor is immidiately elected!

No election announcement though - 0000950.
Also I am able to replace the elected mayor with the one I want - 0002512.

My current fort (0.31.12 version) is at 70+ population and still has an expedition leader. However, two of the immigrant waves were ''really'' big, so they may just not have caught up with elections yet. I'll keep an eye on it.

It would be helpful to upload a save demonstrating this problem. http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^]

Has the Dwarven caravan arrived (and left) since your population reached 50?

That turned out to be the problem- the trade liaison hung around for ages. He left, and the next time I checked the nobles screen the exp. leader/sheriff had been upgraded properly, but if I got an announcement about it I missed it.

There is no announcement about mayor election. It is another bug, reported already.
