How could you possibly think that it is smart to vote straight ticket? Seriously, you have to be a dumb a__ to try and argue that voting straight ticket makes any sense at all, Republican or Democrat.

Now now 12:35 - those whose job security DEPENDED upon straight ticket voting would differ with you.

Ask the County Clerk that question.

Fewer voters are casting straight Party ticket votes! The majority of voters crossed over to vote for the best candidate!

Geezzzz!
You have NO idea the number of fossils in Runaway Bay who take GREAT pride in their voting a straight ticket.

I guess bladder control is linked to independent thinking skills.

It is so awful to vote a straight ticket based on party affiliation. Why aren't there other versions of straight tickets that at least would have more consistency down the line. All men, for instance. Or all over the age of 50. Or all parents.

Nothing like letting someone else decide your vote for you.

I propose a simple solution: eliminate the straight ticket option. Vote how you like, but vote each race independently. Simple.
