The Federal election has been called and thankfully it's soon: September 7th. Then maybe whichever asshole wins can take a little break from explaining exactly how we have to brutalise refugees this week (but only the ones that come on boats! The motion of the ocean turns them into evil sea monsters and they'll use us all for toothpicks! If they come by plane that's just fine.)

I've seen quite a few people confused about preferential voting, but the system the OTW is using for their board election is very similar to the one used in Australian lower house state and federal elections, so it's familiar to me. This is a good system for providing a candidate that the largest number of people find acceptable, rather than a candidate that 49% of people dislike.
