obviously the one who design the ballot sheets didn't read the brief, ie the requirement for a ballot sheet thats found in the state law.

Hear's a thought, I think every campaign's coffer should set aside a percentage to the voting department for funding into getting the right and intelligent people to write up ballot sheets and designing ballot sheets and having a unifying system...

I find it increasingly probably that one day the UN will be asked to come in to observe elections fraud and inconsistencies.
