In Texas, each precinct has their own ballots, with only the races applicable to that precinct on them. The different races are separated by lines to make it clear. Just like in school you fill in the oval with a pencil next to the person you want.

As sinple as this sounds, people still mess this up. Pencils are provided at the stations for example, but there were still many ballots marked in ink. All kinds of stupid stuff.

It would seem that no matter how simple you try to make things there are still people out there that do not care enough to take a moment to read the directions, ask the election officials at the polling place, or review the ballot when it is printed in the newspapers a week before-hand.

No system would be perfect. We just have to find one that is less imperfect than the others.

But I do love the idea of setting one of the candidates adrift and caning the other, LOL!
