Democracy in Action
Of those, only 39,669 voted for Maroglis this time around, while 57,201 voted for Pedro Garcia, making him the winner.
So even though 281,899 wanted Margolis for the job back in Novemeber, because 57,201 wanted Garcia this time around, he wins. Which makes perfect sense to no one. It's pretty obvious no one cared about the outcome of this election (hello, low turnout), and this is kind of a bummer for Margolis (not to say Garcia can't do a decent job, who knows?). Riptide is thinking we might want to change the rules to avoid needless multimillion-dollar runoffs and electoral F-ups in the future.
