Wasted Votes, in 2021?

What is integrity?

Case 1: Too many votes were wasted as a result of the candidate withdrawing (AKA: No Further Preferences/Non-Transferable Differences (NFPs/NTDs) )

629 votes were Non-Transferable Differences in the Postgraduate race. 54% of the NFP votes going to Sian would have won her the position.
970 votes were Non-Transferable Differences in the Presidential race.

Case 2: Not campaigning invalidates the vote

Case 3: The SU should have dealt with this sooner, not give up and declare the election void
