1. run off elections suck!!!!!!!!!!!!
that's the way they do it in San Francisco--there are no primary elections with all the city elections being officially non-partisan.

The plus side is that you usually have a Democrat in the seat, but on the negative side, you split the party between the more liberal and the more moderate wings

I much prefer primary elections. The run-off elections also screw the third party candidates.
