It turns out that only 2 people submitted nomination forms, and as a result they automatically get seats. Currently, the available seats are being offered […]

You can now vote at! It’s quick and easy- remember to rank you choices for candidates. Please note that you only have 2 minutes to make your selections before it times out (yes, it’s really silly).

Today’s debates were definitely the most sparsely attended, as seen here: It’s too bad this debate was empty; I thought this was the best chance to get a feel for the candidates, since they’d had a chance to thoroughly adjust their platforms and approaches.VFM Coordinator Mitch Wright moderated the debates, as AJ was apparently nowhere […]
