RECALL MADNESS….I just got back from voting, and despite the fact that I actually wrote a post two months ago explaining exactly how the candidates’ names were ordered on the ballot, I was still brought up short. I was under the vague impression that while the starting point was random in each county (my ballot started with S), names were alphabetical after that.

Nope. As I myself wrote, the order of names is completely random, so you literally have to search through all 135 names to find the person you want to vote for. My choice, of course, was the 134th person listed. Sheesh.
