Accordng to the rules:

"Nomination period will open immediately upon the Chair's announcement
of the elections, and will continue for two weeks. Two days (48 hours)
after the completion of the nomination period, the voting period will
open and continue for one week."

This rule presupposes that voting can take place immediately after the
nomination period, which is not possible with the current voting
infrastructure being single-threaded.

Since we are making an exception to this rule on the time of voting,
perhaps this is a time to make an exception on the self-nomination
period as well.
