I only skimmed through them [1] but I didn't find any clause permitting
acceptance of the vote before the voting period is over. I remember that we
discussed this here before and I think we came to the conclusion that even if
the result is fixed, we would still wait for everyone to cast their vote, out
of respect. Voting is also used as a measurement of activity so closing the
vote early may interfere with that, even if voting is rarely consider on its

A week is not a long time to wait and it gives everyone the chance to express
their opinion about the candidate, even if the outcome is unchanged.
