I agree that a person nominated should not have to do anything. What
about a community nominations page where community members could
nominate people they would like to see on the ballot and give reasons
why. It could have two checkboxes for "I accept" and "I decline" for
the nominated person to use to acknowledge the nomination. Clicking "I
accept" would lead to the now candidate filling out what candidates
fill out in the self-nomination process. Doing nothing or checking the
"I decline" box leaves the nominated member off the ballot.
