[all] [TC] [elections] Proposed Dates

Hello Everyone!

So, basically if we follow the usual formulas for when to hold the TC and
PTL elections, they overlap a bit but not nicely. You can see what the
dates would be if we exactly followed the usual timeline in this

The proposal from the election officials is that we move the PTL
nominations 1 week early and that gives them 1-week idle time in which we
*could* do campaigning for PTLs the same way we do campaigning for TC
seats. We definitely don't have to do campaigning, it could just be a week
of idle time while TC campaigning happens.

Setting Combined Election

TC Nominations from 2019-08-27T23:45 to 2019-09-03T23:45
PTL Nominations from 2019-08-27T23:45 to 2019-09-03T23:45
Set email_deadline to 2019-09-03T00:00
Setting TC timeframe end to email_deadline
Beginning of Stein Cycle @ 2018-08-10 00:00:00+00:00
End of Train cycle @ 2019-09-03 00:00:00+00:00
Election timeframe: 389 days, 0:00:00s

This format makes it easier for election officials since we would only need
to generate the electorate once for both elections. We can create whatever
polls we need to for PTL elections at the same time we make the TC election
poll. All in all less confusing for the electorate as well (hopefully).
