It's perhaps worth noting this tiny bit of protocol. Email does not
have the same level of reliability as eye contact across a room; for
any particular message you cannot assume that everyone has read it,
or even that it has been delivered to their mailbox. The fine point
here is that for purposes of formal agreement with a particular
person, a confirming message is required.
This allows you to avoid such embarassments as electing someone who
really doesn't want to be elected.
