We got sample ballots in the mail yesterday for the November 4th elections. Didn’t we just have one of these? I wonder if the county deliberately waited until after Tuesday’s election to mail these out—I’m pretty sure they usually send them out more than a month in advance. I expect it would have caused some serious voter confusion to receive information about a November 4th election before the October 7th election. Especially for folks like me who didn’t know we had two elections this fall.
Of course, this time around the ballot items are less newsworthy; I get to vote on a community college board members and a hospital district bond. Important, possibly, but they aren’t going to make the front page of the New York Times. Maybe I’ll get another sticker, though. I got my first “I Voted” sticker last week.
