Voting change to provide protection against unqualified candidates

      818-822 - It would be simpler to allow each member to vote yes or no on whether each candidate should hold a vacant seat. The candidates who get a simple majority of "yes" to "no" votes will get seats in order of who received the greatest proportion of yes to no votes. Should not all seats be filled but candidates remain because they did not receive a majority, that suggests a vote of no confidence for those candidates and the seats should not be filled. This prevents situations with marginal candidates, such as where there are two candidates, two seats, and candidate two gets only one vote but still gets a seat.

      PC> Interesting suggestion, and far too late for this JSR. I suggest we factor this into the "EC merge" JSR. Please log a separate issue to ensure that we don't forget it.
