Cheers and Jeers: Nov. 11, 2013


Just as no one wants to see Christmas lights still up as Easter rolls around, voters have had enough of campaign signs very soon after Election Day. And while we are on the subject of elections .... 

Cheers to poll workers who pointed out to voters that this year’s paper ballot included additional choices on the back side. New Yorkers voted on six propositions that, if passed, would result in amendments to the State Constitution. Because of the many state, county and city (or town or village) races this year, the propositions were on the back of the ballots. At some polling places, this was pointed out to voters; at others, election workers never mentioned it. We think it would have been helpful to all voters to have been informed.
