I count eight nominees thus far (although I may be missing some). Out of those 
eight, there are only three that I'd consider giving a vote to. Others, I'm 
either indifferent to or not so indifferent. Of course, my vote is only one 
count. However, this raises two important questions.

What if the number of nominees is less than or equal to the number of trustee 
positions? Of the people that are nominated, what happens if the total number 
of people that actually receive any votes is less than the number of trustee 
positions?

To be clear, voting occurs for 168 hours beginning 10 May and ending 16 May?
