The December DDO election always falls at a really annoying and inconvenient time. Mid-December many people are studying for and taking exams and those who aren't are preparing for Christmas. I think it would be better if we had it moved to early January

Can we move it to January 2080?

I wouldn't oppose this, so long as we didn't have another election this January--two elections that close would be nuts. But you'd have to move the May election to June, which also wouldn't be bad, because May is finals month, and I am always prepping my kids for CatNats...

That's not a bad idea, I'd support pushing it back to Jan.

I wholeheartedly agree with this. I wasn't able to be as active as I wanted to be during the election because of finals (and the GRE). Doing it in early January would be very helpful.

So.... you don't want to abolish the presidency, then?

No, but it makes it easier for me to campaign to abolish the presidency. I was a little late to the debate this election.

Lol.

That would indeed be an implication--if he wanted to prevent us from abolishing the presidency, he could just never step down.
