"I like how quick it was to find out the result — there's no more need to have lots of people counting the votes."

Preparation for the election took 3 weeks

In the past, similar paper-based elections, as well as the vote counting, usually took 3-4 weeks. The election commission prepared paper-based ballots and was counting the results manually.

Instead of all the time-consuming paperwork that usually accompanied election preparations, MU spent more time distributing election information to students.
