using STeVe is a good idea, a lot better than simple voting. I am not sure
though if the tool can handle binding / non-binding votes.

I am also the strong opinion that if number 1 and 2 are close (less than 3
votes apart), then we should vote again just with the top candidates. A
chair need backing from the whole community not just a simple majority.
