By default, votes are held between admins.
"Popular" (or Project-Wide) votes are held between all members (clearly
defined lits, after bootstrapping is complete).
In the latter case, the Base team ensures everything is done cleanly.
In the bootstrapping process, the person we select to handle the
elections will do that (one-time job, though much more complicated than
it will be afterwards).
