This is explained if you follow the link in the "The Elections overview page
describes the voting methods and process." statement on the wiki page Bart
included in the announcement.

Near the bottom of the linked http://www.x.org/wiki/BoardOfDirectors/Elections
page it states:

> There is a limit of no more than two directors affiliated with the same company or institution. Once two seats are filled with affiliates of a given entity, all further candidates from that entity are skipped over in the ranked results list. 

Both that page and the candidates statement page are also linked to from the
ballot screen.
