Hey, Since "S" Is Far Down on the Ballot...
and since "B" is before "S," is it possible that people will be tired of looking for Arnold and simply vote for Bustamante? (Oh come on, someone had to lighten the mood.)

THE RECALL ALPHABET
R, W, Q, O, J, M, V, A, H, B, S, G, Z, X, N, T, C, I, E, K, U, P, D, Y, F, L.

2. I think alot of the young first time voters.....
might actually vote for Gary Coleman, because it's more of a goofy thing to do. Watch for Coleman to get a surprisingly large amount of votes.

3. if Arnold Drummond becomes Governor of CA
I'm moving there, just so that I can laugh out loud every day for no apparent reason. (I mean, I do that now, but my co-workers worry about me)

5. LA County ballot actually favors Cruz.
He is at the top of the second page.

4. actually....
the ballot is ordered differently in different parts of the state. They choose a random letter to 'start' from, then use the alphabet above to list starting from that letter.

So, for example, here in Santa Cruz, we started with "M". Then V, A, H, etc. etc. and wrap around back to J.

Different counties start with a different letter.
