[arin-ppml] Board Election Petition underway

There were apparently at least 5 candidates. There are 2 open board seats.

The nom-com approved only 3 candidates, hence my complaint.

There are 7 open advisory council seats. I did not count the nomination list size, but I assure you it was well short of 14.
