While this will probably work, it's not a good idea
to change $DefaultPasswords in per-group customizations
(because the changes aren't recognized if the page is
accessed from a different group).

To remove edit restrictions for just the Elections group,
set the edit password in Elections.GroupAttributes to "@nopass".
