In elections users can comment on candidates, see e.g., Do votes on such comments count towards the Pundit badge? Is there a particular reason for letting them count or not count?

Good answer. Is there some argument for letting those vote count rather than not letting them count? – N.N. Feb 2 '12 at 13:37
@N.N. They're votes on comments. Why shouldn't they count? – Justin Morgan Feb 2 '12 at 14:33
@TheGuyWhoDisagreesWithYou I am just curious. They are indeed comments but good comments on elections candidates are to me less such that a pundit would've written them than those on normal posts. Good comments on normal posts are often stating interesting aspects pertaining to a question or an answer showing insight while good comments on election candidates are more of the critic or supporting kind which connects connects less with the stereotype of being a pundit. – N.N.

Wikipedia needs a pundit to fix their sources. Are you busy this afternoon? – mmyers Feb 2 '12 at 16:30
