The same thing happened last year with the EWO election, I believe.
Yes I do remember this!
And as much as it may be "controversial" I do support their actions. I think that many people who vote in the DSU elections will not have heard the hustings or done any "in depth" research into their policies if elected. Most people, including me, look at the "mini manifesto" which is on the voting page....OR vote for people you know.
The only improvement I could think of is that they sent out an e-mail with "negatives" on EVERY candidate for each position, that way we see all of the negatives and can have a "balanced" opinion
