- Ballot papers ask for the voter's name, signature, faculty and college. I suppose the University does predate the secret ballot in the UK by 800 years.
- Candidates are listed simply according to their degrees and previous Oxford positions (with positions at lesser universities relegated to an "Other relevant posts" section). No information is given on how successful candidates might exercise their powers.
I am as excited about voting for library and parks curators or members of the building and estates subcommittee as Americans must be at voting for their state sewage commissioner. Still, at least it is likely to be a century or two before anyone suggests the use of e-voting.
