Actually, we had two different voting systems with different time
Either "normal" voting with 2 years (though voting every year, but only
on half of the people), or approval voting every year. Basically, voting
every year is ok, but we want to avoid having too large changes
happening to the people to "keep the knowledgebase intact". (As with
approval voting, that goal is reached different, so we can vote every
year on everyone, and not only on half of the people.)
