Contested means there is a contest between people - the 50% requirement isn't competitive. I can't see anyone voting against a candidate in an uncontested election based on their hustings. A "no" vote would require some specific reason to think that someone would be a bad trustee - hustings won't change that. At least, the speeches won't - the Q&A might. I think the speeches will be very dull unless we get more than 7 candidates, the Q&A could be interesting, though. _______________________________________________ Wikimedia UK mailing list wikimediau...@wikimedia.org http://mail.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediauk-l WMUK: http://uk.wikimedia.org
