Ballot Question

Does anyone know how the order of names on the primary ballot is determined? I would have expected alphabetical order, but it looked more like they took a polling snapshot from earlier in the year and used that order. Is that not weird?

Very weird. Maybe it was who filed first with the state? Don't know. Either way, I certainly hope people don't vote for a candidate just because they are the first name...

In a lot of places it's all about who files first. That's why there's often a big rush to sign up in Greene County. Sadly a lot of people - if they don't know a lot about the race - do just punch the first name on the list.

Hopefully the presidential race wouldn't fit that bill, but then again.

What got me was the names on the ballot I had never even heard of! Good gravy, Gertie. Get the nobodies off of there.
