It would seem there's a small bug on the election page where content overflows the container on the right side. At first, I thought it was intentional, because I like the fact that the summary boxes stick out a bit. But then I noticed the text was sticking out too. I cut off the left part because I had already voted, and it's not really relevant.

The bug is located in the CSS, where the .election-page .post-text is given a width of 635px, lowering this to about 605px does the trick.

.election-page .post-text {
    padding-top:  15px;
    padding-left: 5px;
    width:        635px; //culprit

  • oh yeah, in the second screenshot the page is dark because I use a Dark Reader extension, it has no influence on the lay-out of the page

    It could do with a bit more padding on the left too... 5px between the voting buttons is a bit tight
