This is all rather awkward timing. Is there a statutary reason for 
ending the election in 2007?

I can imagine that a lot of people will be in places without access to 
the interweb, or that there are people who do not check (for 
instance) their work email during this period. Those people will be 
rather surprised to find these election emails in their mailbox on 
january 2nd, or even worse, january 7th, this no matter how many 
reminders they get sent.

To be honest, i didn't find the reasons for delaying the nomination 
process that important, certainly not important enough for staging the 
actual elections at the most awkward time of year.

Maybe the election period should be extended by a week?
