Currently, the nominations are displayed in reverse chronological order on the time the candidate submitted their name. This seems to disadvantage those who were quickest to submit their nomination. We all know there are problems with chronological sorting (as discussed frequently with regarding to first answers having an advantage over more complete, later answers). At least with respect to answers to questions, one hopes the voting mechanism will ultimately sort the better answers to the top. In this election / nomination process there is no such sorting mechanism, leaving the first nominees at a permanent disadvantage. With only 7 candidate right now it isn't so bad (though I can imagine plenty of people not making it to the end of the list), but if the number of candidates were to get into the high teens it seems very likely some of the candidate profiles would get lost at the bottom of the list.
So can the nominee profiles / blurbs be displayed in random order when the election page is opened?
