I'm a tl;dr it all for ya: bylaws say the TC can declare a term
that's up to 16 months, but if they don't specify it prior to the
election for that term (which they didn't) then it defaults to 12
and what you have there is (accounting for your curious way of
writing 2019-03-05T23:45:23UTC) is a ~13.5 month term. In order to
avoid needing a special election to fill the expired terms for ~6
weeks until the election, we need to pull it in by at least a couple
weeks (because the charter will allow those seats to remain vacant
if the open up within a month of a scheduled election).

Clear as mud? ;)
