Californians, please vote!

Tuesday, June 03, 2014

And since I've been working in ballot processing, here is my two cents' worth of advice: please follow the instructions and vote correctly. The write-in line is only for valid, registered candidates. Do not write in your friend's name or Mickey Mouse or "none of the above". If you don't want to vote for any of the candidates, leave it blank and save your wisecracks for Facebook.

ANYTHING on a write-in line causes the ballot to be spit out of the machine, and it must then be handled by a team of workers who manually review the ballot against the list of candidates and then resubmit it for tabulation - this extra time costs taxpayer dollars, so please don't waste it.

For a list of registered candidates, see your city/county's elections website.
