Mark Elkins reminded me about what happened In Tanzania.  It was a 
healthy discussion of the election process.

According to the existing election process: "Ineligible nominations 
will be rejected and the nominators and nominees notified 
separately".  I gather that it is the responsibility of the NomCom to 
ensure that the slate of candidates is valid.  The Chair of the 
NomCom announces the names of the persons elected once the election 
results are available.  In general, one might not want to hold an 
election where a candidate is ineligible to serve if he or she is 
elected as it opens the way to questionable practices where the 
election process is bypassed.

If I am part of the Board of Directors, for example, can I be elected 
as Chair of the PDWG?
