I think as Xubuntu does, only team members should be allowed to vote.
Though, it's a bit unclear what constitutes the Ubuntu Studio team. :)

I think the voting should be open, my suggestion is on IRC. No anonymous
votes. However, that is just my opinion.

Some thoughts about the next coming two years would be good to have, and
how the lead is going to "run the business". Otherwise it is kind of voting
in the dark unless you know the person beforehand.

I also think it might be helpful if you/we could document what is expected
from the project lead, so they know what is expected of them before they
volunteer for the position. But also as I wrote before, I think some of the
tasks of current project lead could be delegated to other roles. That have
not really been the case lately due to the team being so small. But with
any luck the team might grow again and it wouldn't be such great task for
someone in the PL roles to do more or less everything.
