There were only 9 votes from Ukrainian community in 2013, I believe
So this year we just made sure that our community REALLY knows about the
elections, thus we:
- translated the candidates statements into Ukrainian
- prepared a short table with the essence of these statements in Ukrainian
and posted it in the Village pump 
- created a list of everybody eligible to vote from Ukrainian Wikipedia and
sent them a message with invitation to vote and with the links to read more
about the candidates via talk pages
- and just talked :)
