It's three, as per the procedures we approved at the in-person board meeting.  I'll contact the RefreshMedia folks and make sure that any messages that go out contain the correct information.

Hello David Redordon - SixApart,

The OpenID Foundation is holding its first community board member
elections later this year and the first step is getting a great slate
of candidates.  The OpenID Foundation board is made up of both
individuals elected by the membership and corporate board members who
pay an annual fee.

Nominations for this election are currently open and must be completed
by November 20th, 2008. Please visit the Member Center at http://openid.net:3010/foundation/members/elections/
  to cast votes in support of a nominee as each needs two votes to
become an actual candidate in the election.

If you wish to run as a candidate, please visit the Member Center at http://openid.net:3010/foundation/members/elections/
  and fill out your own nomination.  You'll need to have at least two
other members of the Foundation support your nomination to become a
candidate.

As a reminder, please cast your votes of support or nominate yourself
before November 20, 2008.

The OpenID associated with your membership is http://www.davidrecordon.com/

Thank you for your participation and continued help in making OpenID
successful!

Board Member Election for November 2008 -> Community Board Member
Election for November 2008

I'd just remove:
"This election is running and nominations are being gathered. Nominate
yourself if you think you'd make a great board member and make sure to
second nominees already running in the election." and the "Details"
heading

I'd move the "Nominees and Seconds" above the area to nominate yourself.

I'd change "I second this nominee" to "I support this nominee"

Change:
Running for the board is easy. fill out the candidacy statement below
to get yourself on the nominees list. If you meet the eligibility
requirements and three other members second you nomination, you'll be
listed as a candidate on the ballot. While running for the board is
easy, there are some serious responsibilities for board member -
please review them before proceeding.

Once you submit your candidacy statement, you won't be able to edit
it. We did this so that the statements would remain consistent
throughout the election process, so take a few minutes to compose your
thoughts before you hit the 'Nominate yourself' button.

If you wish to run as a candidate, please fill out the candidacy
statement below explaining why you think you'll make a good board
member of the OpenID Foundation.  You'll need to have at least two
other members of the Foundation support your nomination in order to
become a candidate.  Please keep in mind that there are certain
eligibility requirements (link this?) to serving as a board member and
that while writing a short statement might be easy, there are some
serious responsibilities in being a board member.

'Nominate yourself' button.

Do we limit the length of the statements?  Should we?  Is it just
plain text?

Why are company affiliations showing up next to a nominee's name?

"Number of seconds " to "Number of supporting votes"

Cool?  Cool!

Thanks,
--David
