Sometimes things are amusing - RonO's Ramblings

Jan. 17th, 2008 10:04 am Sometimes things are amusing

Just now, I glanced at the DuPage County Election Notice that was included in this weeks Bartlett Examiner for the upcoming primary election.

Just below the fold, it makes note of the colors of the ballots for the different parties. I was amused to learn that "the Democratic ballot will be green" yet "the Green Party ballot will be blue." Somehow it would just make more sense to make the Green's ballot the green one. Hopefully there won't be any cases where someone asks for a "Green Ballot" and gets handed a green colored, Democratic ballot.

You know, I read that yesterday and was thinking to myself, "do the people who set this up even read what they are writing?"

Now, now ... the job description included the ability to write, it didn't say anything about reading and it certainly didn't say anything about comprehension!

When you go to vote, ask for a "green" ballot and see how the pollworkers interpret it. If you don't want the ballot they ultimately give you, you can ask for a different one.
