I am inclined to agree.  We can avoid that mistake in future.

You can see in the video of the announcement of the results of the 2017 Governance Committee that 100 votes were cast, and all the votes went to the only candidate.  See the first 40 seconds of the video at <https://youtu.be/HSJCRrKoOgs>.  This obviously means that zero votes went to “None of the above”.  I don’t know how you jump from that to “votes were not even counted” or “I wonder how the winner was determined”.
