Why, thank you :)  If anyone wants to help improve it the code is here:

Same order for council and board candidates, and did it by going through the
list asking you to vote yes/no for each candidate. You had to deliberately vote
no for someone in slots #1-5 to vote yes for someone else in slot #6 or higher.

Making the candidate order random, plus allowing you to pick from a list instead
of yes/no is precisely because I lost my first council run by being in slot #6 on
the Wiki. :-p
