No, it hasn’t. This is not how democracy works.
In an actual democracy, you can’t generate votes out of thin air just by purchasing additional ballots (conveniently offered for $15 a piece through a storefront run by the electoral oversight committee) and filling them in.
In an actual democracy, candidates are given equal platforms, and present those platforms by campaigning and competing in debates.
In an actual democracy, measures are taken to prevent gaming the electoral process through organized bloc-voting in order to maintain a system ruled by a minority of tyrants.
In an actual democracy, elected officials are obligated to represent the interests of all of their constituents, instead of merely those of the special-interests group fronting their for-profit entity.
Don’t kid yourself, or anyone else here. There’s nothing democratic about the CSM elections, or the entire system the CSM represents.
