This seems like a great idea to me, and a nice way for FWN to help 
spread the word on getting more community involvement in the election!

One suggestion might be to include these as they come in, in regular FWN 
issues, and then put together a special issue of all of these together, 
along with any other additional content y'all feel would be useful, 
closer to the election, perhaps at the beginning of the voting period. 
Other suggestions most welcome!
