Perhaps I didn't state this completely clearly.  There is no privileged 
information to be provided during the election. Yes, the requirement is 
that someone who agrees to be placed on the election ballot and voted 
it, shall commit to signing the NDA as a precondition prior to the 
vote.  The reason for this language is because will be quite awkward and 
disruptive, will it not, if someone is elected and then doesn't then 
sign the NDA - we'd then need to hold elections again just for that 
person's position.
