I definitely support online voting – everything else would be contradictory to an academic course bearing the word democracy in its name. Voting in Brussels would distort the outcome (favouring people living in Brussels/Europe or those who simply can afford to come regarding time/money etc.). Bear in mind that the date for this meeting was announced and finally fixed relatively short term, which made physical participation very hard/almost impossible for the majority of the masteroni living outside Europe.

 

Secondly: I would also suggest to give new candidates the possibility to be included in the campaign after the Brussels meetings and after the outcome (protocol etc.) has been posted. I am sure the meeting itself will motivate new candidacies.
