The official answer is B.

Sorry about the typo, women should be woman in the answers.

isnt the idiom for "elected" is "elected to" so how come B is right?
my answer was C.
I hate when this happens, MGMAT says 'elected to', and my notes tell me 'elected as' so I guess you can use both!

Though "elected as" is not idiomatic, I pick B because the tense is right.

Yes, you are right. If the sentence points to a specific time in the past, use simple tenses.
