Centralizing (1a)

Very cool!


- once navigated from the vote-space to the pollserver overview, you 
cant go back to the old vote-space. It forgets, where you came from.

- does the ranking only show candidates with more then 1 vote and leaves 
the rest out?
Because many are not shown. Very cool, to click on a voter in the list, 
and then see him in the vote-tree too!

- just to mention: the poll-service-page does not contain any 
information, which is not already in the vote-page (at least right now)

- if one navigates from an opened tree in the vote-space to the 
poll-service-page and back, the tree is collapsed. would it maybe be 
good to have it still open? Also the selected user is not selected anymore.

- sometimes (very seldom) the graphics of the navigation tool is 
distorted (see screenshot) (not important!)

I'd like to talk about the geographical navigation with you. I dont 
really understand "Area, Scheme, District". Why not have: Global - 
International - Country - State - City/Region - Riding - Ward? Under 
each could be a list of all the polls in this area. Wouldnt this cover 
all possible polls?
