The elections page is one of those areas of the site that don't get much traffic (if at all) on a regular basis. However during elections, these pages receive a large amount of traffic in a relatively short period of time. Along with this traffic comes, by any Stack Overflow definition, a r r r r r r really long comment section for almost each nomination. Don't get me wrong; This is all well and good. Voters and candidates should definitely have the opportunity to openly discuss each others' nominations and voting considerations.
We've all been thinking it, so I'll just put it out there.
