Dear candidates and fellow suscribers,

Currently, 9383 Europeans have activated their membership.
That's 26.1 percent of the total European members.
(If you haven't done it already, activate your membership
at https://members.icann.org/activate.html)

The number of supporters needed is thus currently 188, but
will likely rise to 400-600.

No. I'm almost certain the number of nominees with more than 
2 percent supporters is higher than two, but this is how it
is designed. 

So I agree with Marc Schneiders:

Any two or three candidates with similar positions should
*really* consider forming a team with only one candidate,
or else they risk that their vote is split and no one
ends up on the ballot.
