This Votermedia ballot is not currently funded. It is displayed as a demo for if and when there is funding. Without funding there may be few votes, which makes the rankings less meaningful. During the 2015 UBC AMS elections we ran two UBC AMS votermedia contests: A $700 Continuous VoterMedia (CVM) contest on the ballot above, and a $1500 One-Time Elections VoterMedia (1VM) contest funded by AMS -- see info linked here.
