I would actually lean to agree with you. I don't think asking someone to vote for you would sway them to actually vote for you, it would really be based off what you are saying, how you are acting and what you are looking to do if you were to become Members President.
I don't really want to be super involved in HOW these elections run but when it starts running over the guidelines of the forums I will have to step in.
This might be something you want to think about making a rule around.
Something to the effect of:
Let your speeches persuade people to vote for you, don't tag multiple people asking them to vote for you.
Ultimately, up to everyone of the forums but just be aware I do agree with Awesome here and these posts are becoming quite spammy.
