For a recent TAG discussion of TAG makeup and elections, see:

  http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/2012/10/07-minutes#item02

This might require a bit of interpretation if you're not familiar with TAG minutes, so my summary:   I thought the primary issue in the past has been getting enough (presumed qualified, if nominated) candidates.  Not all elections were contested. Others were concerned about "tactical voting".

I don't think voting is regular, and there usually isn't any electioneering like there seems to be, this time around. So perhaps there will be a bigger turnout, since you're lobbying people to pay attention to the election.

I am curious about the history of TAG elections.  There are 383 member organization IIRC, but they aren't required to actually vote.  Are there any "turnout" numbers from past elections?

I think it's fantastic that people actually care what the TAG does.

I'd suggest the current TAG discuss some of the issues raised as to problems with the TAG (things that need to be reformed) if only for continuity.
