Another Popularity Contest

As one of the most apathetic 1Ls who just doesn't care about anything, the ISBA elections barely register as a blip on my radar. However, one thing I did notice: what happens when you like one of the candidates running for co-president, but you really, really hate their running mate? As in, you can't stand that person so much you would rather eat your shoe than cast a vote for that person? So do you end up voting for the two people anyway, because you like the one person, or do you end up abstaining, thereby sacrificing the good apple for the bad? Isn't this letting the bad apple win, either way?

Too bad you can't vote for only half the team. Well, let the most popular duo win; we'll see which set is liked overall the most.
