How does this handle the situation where someone does not get voted in -
the last thing I want to do is put people off from contributing because
they risk a negative public vote?

An option might be to ask a nominee in advance if they are interested,
so that it is a risk they are aware of in advance. You could argue that
by submitting patches they have opened themselves up for it, but I would
prefer it was explicit.
