Unless your municipality actually lets children vote, "child elections" sounds really odd in English. Are you talking about some kind of mock election staged by a schoolteacher?

It sounds odd to use "would" with counterfactual meaning outside the apodosis of a conditional sentence. I'm left wating for an "if" clause that never arrives.

"Stuff" may have a collective meaning, but it takes a singular verb, like other mass nouns

I would only use "late" in this context if I were talking about a delivery. Say you have a situation where someone picks up clothes to iron from their neighbours and then brings them back fully pressed. (This was once rather common.) If they promised you they'd have your shirts done by noon on Friday and they're not done by then, then they are "late with the ironing". But if someone just irons clothes for themselves or their own household and they haven't done it yet, I would say they're "behind in the ironing".
