[maemo-community] Suggestion for election instructions

I would delete this paragraph:

The election has 4 steps - first, you must identify yourself using the
voting token above. Then select your preferred candidates in order of
preference. A third step will show you your choice, and ask you to
confirm or return to the previous step. Finally, after confirming your
choice, a unique identifier will be given to you which will allow you to
verify after the election that your vote was counted correctly. To ensure
anonymity, no link will be kept between this token and your identifiers,
so please keep this token safe.

And  tell them what they're doing right WHEN they're doing it. First
reading: oh, four long steps... that's too much... bye bye potentional

> * Electioninstructions are OK, I think - does anyone have suggestions for

> * Including candidacy statements: Not a fan. If listing the candidates
> makes the email long, then including declarations makes it too long.
> Any other bits of feedback or suggestions, or is this good to send out next
> weekend?
> Cheers,
> Dave.
