Voting Blank

leave a comment »

I have a new story in todays paper on voters casting blank ballots and protest ballots during the elections. People would write fake candidates or statements and drop them in the ballot box, same with blank ballots. I needed more sources, but only had a short time to turn it around. Thanks to Sean Lee for turning me on to it, and the Feminist Collective blog for a cool post on it.
I wasn’t crazy about the headline put on the story because the only race blank/invalid ballots could have decided was one between two March 8 people, but oh well.
