Council Election Ballot Order

Original post made by Herb Borock, Professorville, on Aug 18, 2007

The other newspaper in town reported that the Secretary of State's randomized alphabet would be used for the candidates ballot order for the November Council election, because the City Council did not have a quorum for holding a meeting to choose the ballot order for the Council's scheduled 6:00 p. m., Thursday, August 16, 2007 meeting.

Very interesting, Herb.

How did you obtain the information from the Secretary of State's office? Is it publicly available on the web?

No muss, no fuss.
Simple, easy-to-use, and ever-so-gentle on the environment.
And all at a price tag you just can't beat.

Herb, I think you've got a winner; sold me.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
