“The whole framework of the presidency is getting out of hand. It’s come to the point where you almost can’t run unless you can cause people to salivate and whip on each other with big sticks. You almost have to be a rock star to get the kind of fever you need to survive in American politics.”
― Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72

The same man who once spent his whole pay-cheque on suits, won a contest for being the best dressed Canadian during a reception largely made up of U.S. citizens at a conference in Washington, D.C.
He was wearing — what else — a hockey jersey, with a big Canadian Maple Leaf (the symbol, not the team) on the front.
Besides the hospitality shown by the NAACO conference organizers and meeting a lot of awesome people, Dave winning a Tim Horton’s card was definitely a highlight. A Timmie’s Card is about as familiar as a Hoser to our friends below the 49th parallel so Dave was the envy of many Canucks in the room.
Upon hearing his name called, Dave immediately lept up out of his seat and bounced around the room; his elbow narrowly missing another delegates’ chin.
Next year the event is in Seattle so the hockey jersey may not be that foreign to those folks…but to win another Tim’s Card, Dave may have to bust out his Don Cherry-like suits from the closet (kidding Dave – you have way better style than Cherry!).
The Electionbuddy team has been hard at work creating some great new features for our ever-growing list of organizations running elections through Electionbuddy. One of these nifty new features is the CANDIDATE PHOTO upload feature. For all of you visual decision makers out there, the candidate photo feature should make your voting experience much more easy and personal! Election administrators can upload any JPEG image including a photo of the candidate themself, a company logo, or any other visual aid to compliment the text entered into the candidate profile. The feature also automatically crops the image into a nice looking square which sits beside the candidate profile text. The candidate photo feature is sure to make professional looking election profile creation a breeze – try it out in your next election and let us know what you think!
