Most entertainingly, one candidate can't remember whether he voted for George W. Bush or John Kerry in 2004. That's pretty bad since it was both the first and last election he ever voted in.
Needless to say, Tony Sutton & Michael Brodkorb are going to win re-election as chairman and deputy chairman, respectively.
