We can't vote for "reelection".
If one says "Dev A" is a better council candidate than "Dev B" it doesn't
mean that "Dev B" is not a good council candidate.

So how would you backup the claim about "relative votes" and "ranked in
the bottom half of candidates"?


Jorge, or any other election official, can you explain why the master
ballot contains 145 ballots and council-2008-results.txt says: "We
received 143 valid votes and two invalid (two people who forgot to issue
votify --submit)."
