    How could 400 candidates receive “no votes at all”? Didn’t they at least vote for themselves?!

      It does seem funny, doesn’t it? From what I can tell, most of the candidates with no votes are from schools with low turnout. It may be that those candidates signed up and then decided they didn’t really want the job.
