Why should you get 2 votes just because you are commish? Do you pay twice the entry fee?

I only use the extra vote in case those who vote only vote for themselves. Voter turnout is less than 100%, and instead of having run-off elections, etc, in the event of a tie I usually just break it. People seem OK with it.

How about a rule that you can't vote for yourself?
