I'd like to congratulate Ben. Though I'd like to ask him whether he could perhaps put forward a proposal to have these kind of by-elections have their own thread in the future as the low turn-out in this election really is rather disappointing and probably (?) due to low awareness of the fact that it was happening.
Also, noone voted for me? really?
I'm aware of that, and would have preferred to have a separate thread... but with the exception of the presidential primary, all other internal ballots have occurred in this thread.
