Don't we usually vote by e-mail?

What happens if this doesn't happen? Is the election nullified? Having
this clause in there makes me nervous because we are left with a highly
ambiguous and dangerous situation if, for instance, Wichert gets drunk at a
bar after the election and drunkenly steps in front of a train. Not that
this would really happen, of course :-)

The point is, we should either suggest a certain direction or specify what
happens of the requirements are not met.

Another question that needs to be clarified is: exactly whic hseats are up
for grabs? Ian, Joey, and Manoj?
