The scoring delay stems from the fact that I haven't added in the scoring 
part of the db yet. So even if I had calculated the scores, they probably 
wouldn't be on the page yet. This should be trivial, though; I'll 
definitely have it done by the time the upcoming voting period is over.

On that note, I've been thinking about proposing some election rules--we'll 
probably need some way of filling offices, unless we want them to be 
something other than elective.
