Howto use:
 1. Install and configure the vote application and enable the admin interface
    if it has not already been done.
 From the admin interface:
 2. Create voting groups. Since this application was written mainly for Student
    council elections, groups represent groups of students who can vote for a
    certain position. Example, only Grade 10, 11 and 12 students (``Grade
    10--12'' Group) can vote for the ``Grade 10--12 representative'' position.
 3. Create positions, filling in the requested information and selecting the
    groups that may for for the created positions.
 4. Create candidates for each position. You may optionally upload a picture.
 5. Create the desired amount of voters in each group and print the list of
    created voters.
 On election day:
 6. Have the voters queue. Once they have supplied credentials, randomly select
    a UUID from the UUIDs created for their group and direct them to logon to
    the UUID login page ('http://123.456.789.012/vote/' by default) and to
    select their candidates. Inform them that they must thoroughly ensure that
    they have correctly selected their choices before submitting since it is
    impossible to uncast a vote.
 After the elections:
 7. You may view the election results at any time by visiting
    /admin/vote/results/ .
