Yes, I feel that way too and am curious why it is set up this way.

Hi everyone,

I would like te reiterate that I find it very odd that as a group, we prefer to have private nominations.

If I am willing to support someone, I have no qualms about making that support public. Moreover, I find it troublesome that as a BC member, I do not know until the nomination deadline has passed whether someone has been nominated for a position or not.

I am left with having to try to read into a reminder message such as this one whether it is being sent two days before the deadline because there have been no nominations, or because it's just two days before the deadline.

And if I did know what nominations had been made, especially if none had been made, I might be spurred on to reach out to other potential candidates and try to get them on board. But with the current private nomination system, I just don't know.

Is there a historical reason for having private nominations? Do others feel, like I do, that it's time to put an end to the secrecy and to run fully transparent election processes?
