reduce the election time window
The amount of time from "approved slate" to elections completed is too long. 2 -2.5 weeks should be adequate time to have an election after the slate is announced
I think you are spot on here Allen. I personally would like to think we could go even tighter and have a joint campaigning and voting period of 1 week. What do you think? Is this do-able? To be clear this would be in conjunction with, say, daily activities to help engage the electorate.
The reason I think this is important is because its important that the election is a focused event. If we can get the time down and the activities up then we should have an engaged community event which would be a great thing!
Do you agree? How short do you think we could go?
P.S. If you like this idea please comment but also use your votes! It will help us understand the strength of feeling for a given suggestion. Thanks.
