No, this is completely off. If a candidate withdraws during an election,
you should declare the current ballot void and start a new one without the
Leaving the ballot running, but telling people who have not voted yet that
one candidate has withdrawn is *unfair* to those who already voted.
I would hope that running a ballot is low-enough cost that this doesn't
have a cost impact, unlike a paper election!
If Jeff had been elected to the board and then resigned the day after the
election then I assume there's regulations for having new by-elections for
vacant seats, but this situation is not the same.
