We need a clear set of rules, which we follow, regardless of how we feel about the outcome.

There are scenarios we need to address in the voting, though. Votes that go 1/0/15 shouldn't pass. Votes that go 6/5/5 probably shouldn't pass. Votes that go 8/1/7 clearly suck, and we should stop doing that!
Seriously, though, it is not immediately clear that an 8/1/7 vote should pass. If there is that much apathy about a ticket, does the standard need to grow?
