I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

You cannot have it both ways.
Fallacy.

How could a 60% figure work? Keep having an election until the electorate give up we get 60% by default? A 60% or other marginal system only works on a change/no change vote.

Having been a poll clerk when we had 2 or 3 elections in a few weeks the voters showed their dislike voting - once yes but no more.
