OK, so, if I really want to vote for FESCo, I can sneak my way into the
voting pool if I know somebody?

This does not sound like the kind of "democracy" that we want.  Why have
a special pool of citizens?  And does the special pool have to be made
up only of the kind of people who are being elected?

Special pools of voters for special positions:

* Only lawyers can vote for Federal Judges.
* Only medicos are allowed to vote for Surgeon General.
* Only white males are allowed to vote for President. 

What if you are not in that special pool and want to run or vote?  Put
on some whiteface and fake a law degree?
