"none of the above" is there for a reason, it in itself is an entity. If it
was not there what would the purpose of voting be if I did not agree with
any of the candidates?
It in its self is a "candidate" and it won.

It is there for a real reason and is perfectly democratic. How else would
you vote for change if you did not agree with any of the candidates, not
voting is not an option.
