[Members] number of Board / Council numbers

Some years ago, we limited the number of Council members to 5, so in 
Council elections only the top 5 vote-getters are elected. However, this 
is not reflected in the Bylaws.

It's unclear even to me if we similarly restricted to Board to 3 
members. I thought we had, but I haven't yet found explicit evidence of 
that in the list archives. If we did, the top 3 vote-getters will be 
elected. If not, then any candidate receiving more than 50% of the vote 
will be elected. IMHO that could be confusing -- what if we have 20 
people run for Board and they all receive 50% of the vote?

I will do some further research about this and post links so we can get 
this clarified.
