write in vote
As you may remember we made it nearly impossible last year to become a write in candidate. This year we just made it worse. A small provision in a bill that was supposed to mostly do technical changes also had a provision that would have extended the amount of notice given to the election commission necessary to mount a write in campaign. The old notice was 20 days previous to any election and with the new change it would be 50 days. I guess the thought of Senator "low tax" Looper wasn't enough to scare the Democrats away from this piece of incumbent protection.
