They sure did vote for a lesser evil. My biggest little Prop lost her election.
She had a lot of good issues and an actual platform, but alas, grade school elections are all about popularity (maybe they all are, but I'm not that cynical yet).
The good thing is she went to the teacher moderating the Student Council and asked that her campaign promises be honored. The teacher told her that she could take charge of them and made my little Prop the Commissioner of Suggestion Boxes.
So, although she lost she is still on the council (Kobayashi Maru) and still able to honor her promises. I'm so proud!
