So that makes a little less than 10% of the current populace voting. If
you take me, you and Galen into account, we get to exactly 10% accounted
for. If we assume that all 20 people didn't vote, we'd have ~39 people
accounted for. Making the percentage ~17%. I think/hope that's even less
than the average voting percentage for real elections.

Ahh. That's right, so if everyone could have 3 nominees, that would only
need about 9 people doing the original nominations. (Counting the
duplicate nominations I remember of the top of my head.) So we then have
over 200% of the nominating populace voting. That's a much better
