That’s a reasonable observation, and I don’t believe you’d be the first to note it. I would be interested in hearing specific suggestions around remedying that. Though I’m not sure how much administrative latitude we have without actually changing the constitution, as it’s fairly clear on allowing anyone at any time.

> "Any Supporting Member may announce his or her intention to be elected as a Director at any time, and must set a 7-day voting period to end no later than 21 days from the initial announcement of intention to run. Supporting Members are entitled to one vote each. Election of a board member shall be successful if the candidate receives more “Yea” votes than “Nay” votes."

As someone declares their candidacy – that triggers a vote on that individual by those reading the email thread.  But it is never clear who else may be declaring.  It seems that having the ability to see the complete list of those declared candidates and then the electorate having the ability to review that slate and then vote, based on the knowledge of who all is running  would support more informed decision making.
