- If elected, will you actively work to outlaw candidate slates? – Yes.
- If elected, will you actively work to outlaw “sample ballots” used by candidate slates as political advertisements? – No (more than slates use sample ballots, voters find them helpful, likely unconstitutional to prohibit).
- If elected, will you actively work to establish an independent, nonpartisan system for drawing legislative and congressional districts? – Yes.
So, not only was Mizeur the first to respond, there were two “yes” answers. Not bad at all!
Since I am a reasonable guy, I will be the first to admit that she makes some valid points about sample ballots. But—and I may be over-interpreting her Tweet here—I get a feeling she has not thought through all the negative impacts these “helpful” sample ballots have, especially on the lower ballot races. I will try to engage her on this in the coming months, so stay tuned.
