The candidates were told of the one month stretch which was done,
ostensibly, because it gets rather crazy here in our New York retail
store in December, and we would just not be able to run the
elections at that time. We considered shortening to November or
even October, but, logistically, it was going to put too much
pressure on us when we should be concentrating on holiday sales.
End of January is MUCH better for us.

I understand that it puts an extra burden on the moderators, but
the alternate (Dann) may possibly come in handy, but how they work
the rotation is totally up to them.
