Meanwhile, we should start collecting nominees.
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? Regards, Jason Stubbs
