My own opinion is enough for me, and I claim the right to have it defended against any consensus, any majority, anywhere, anyplace, anytime.

Since 9/11 the NSA has spent at least $70,000,000,000. The NSA has admitted lying about their effectiveness, but has definitely stopped one plot: transferring $8,500 to a Somali terror group. Even if we sweep aside the extensive lawbreaking, ethical problems, economic damage, and abuse of power, the fact remains that the NSA is useless.

You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.

if this ever happened the alliance would campaign as much as they could to elect an alliance char as war-chief just to say fuck you to the horde
jaina for warchief.
I think the idea of an election is possible, but it's probably best to experiment with a less important position first and it's much to late to implement it for Horde Warchief (since that's due to be revealed next week). Maybe they could have the Gnomes and Goblins elect new leaders.
I definitely agree with Daetur that Blizzard would have to limit it to 2-3 reasonable choices. Otherwise it would just be chaos.
Roleplaying, hardcore Raiding, running LFR on the occasional weekend, PvPing, rolling alts, achievement hunting, pet battling, or just enacting an endless series of whims, I don't care how you play WoW. Just as long as you have fun doing it.
i would vote for hogger
I vote for Woodcutting...
Either that or Gamon.
But seriously though, it wouldn't work too well, lack of choices will cause people to scream and yell for more, too many choices will cause people to question how Blizzard will choose if there's not enough of a majority.
And the story would have to be changed because of the choices just to accommodate something like Alexstrazsa for Warchief.
Democracy doesn't work because of idiocity and is easily abused by some guy campaigning for something ridiculous (see death star). Besides there isn't a single country today that actually has a proper democracy , most democratic nations only have the choice between party A and B, maybe C (voting C usually means your vote is wasted anyway, because they won't be able to do jack shit) and in the end you are stuck with a 51 to 49 majority that can do what they want, because any promose made during the election is forgotten after the winners party where they drink their brains out. Couple of years later rince and repeat. Actual democracy only works in very smal communities, like back in ancient grece when every adult male was able to raise his hand to vote for something, with out depending on some intermediate party that may or may not do what you want.
Edit: Hmm sorry, went off the road somehwere with my rant ..
