Been there, done that, got the T-shirt! almost impossible to stop the kids joining in especially when you give them a free t-shirt.
Must have felled a lot of trees to make those voting papers. You could go camping under one of them.
There must be over a thousands of candidates names on each ballot!! This will make the proccess of counting and admistrating the votes rather complicated and error prone, I think….
Geez, those papers are about as big as a bed sheet. And as Primarydrive says, it’ll be error prone indeed. Not to mention it will take ages. The sheets are bigger, harder to fold (the right way, as they won’t fit into the boxes any other way) and it’ll be a pain in the *** to find the right name. KPU should be teached what the word ‘efficient’ means.
