If it doesn't matter if they are accurate, it seems an unnecessary expense. Just save the paper and don't bother sending samples out at all.

There's no perfection out there, but I'm not going to turn her into some type of evil person.

We all know a lot more now then we did back then. And yes, I know that Senator Sanders voted against the war.

There are SERIOUS problems in this country and although you might be comfortable, millions are anything but. Clinton will do NOTHING for these people. Just as poverty has grown to it's historical high level under Obama. This shit is going to stop.

198. She Learned Nothing, She Did the Same in Lybia

She has learned nothing. It was way more than a "mistake". She should have said a lot more about it. I would like to send her on a slow helicopter ride over the whole region so she could see with her own eyes what she has done. More than 500,000 people are dead over there and the whole region destabilized. But that doesn't stop her, she destabilized Syria and Libya too on her watch as Sect'y of State. I spent 14 years in the Peace Movement because of her "mistake". Her apology means nothing to me. Better minds like Senator Byrd and others voted the other way, as did Senator Sanders. Do not trivialize these deaths as a "mistake"! I am voting for Senator Sanders all the way! My brother law died in Vietnam for a lie so our family knows a lot more than her about "mistakes".

147. DNC corruption ties

These sample ballots come from the DNC of Illinois. Chairwoman of DNC is Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She declared her endorsement of Hillary since 2007. Yes you can hold Hillary Clinton responsible. The establishment is backed by corporatist money. The establishment wants someone who can keep their interests in mind, despite what Hillary "promises," wall street would simply get a slap on the wrist similar to a bug bite. Open your eyes and do your research. Please don't use soundbites as your platform to be with Her. Remember this, as Hillary Clinton takes money from federal lobbyists, federal lawyers (that were banned by Obama and overturned by Debbie), superpacs, corporate CEOs, wall street and backing of elites aka superdelegates--she is also telling her individual supporters they should give to her. This is corporate greed at its finest. Bernie Sanders runs on individual contributions. Do you really think Hillary Clinton has Your best interest in mind? Is it possible with all her flip flipping, she may have her own agenda?

They can afford to buy all kinds of dirty tricks and have been known to throw elections.

While some seek the comfort of siding with Big Money, the People's Movement will eventually throw them out in the street.

I've already voted in suburban Cook County and Sanders is on the ballot.

The flyer in question lists only Tammy Duckworth for Senator. There are two other candidates on the ballot in that race. This is the kind of thing I always toss.

But this is a sample ballot before a primary and it says it is the "official" Democratic sample ballot. But it does not list all the candidates.

An official ballot put out by the party should be neutral and list all the candidates for each office. Otherwise it's more of a misleading ad for certain candidates.

83. I got one similar to this one in the mail in Chicago last week

 

They time it so it hit right before early voting started (that was Monday, February 29). We got sample ballots Friday, February 26 in the mail.

Go to another ward and you may find Sanders listed on their ward's sample ballot , a guide on who to vote for

Chicago Mayor Rahm vs J. Garcia last election, i noticed many on here @ DU assumed Garcia was a republican running against Rahm.
No he was another dem and the real election was the ....primary.... except in that case it was close enough that a runoff vote was needed after the primary but never was the news about either running against a repuke

If there even was a repuke running for mayor I don't remember the name
Was there one? It was a dem vs dem race really

112. "ELECTION LAW PERMITS YOU TO TAKE THIS SAMPLE BALLOT INTO THE VOTING BOOTH"

Back in the olden days, when I was a poll worker, it wasn't unusual for a voter to be given a ride to the polling place by a campaign worker; and for someone to have conveniently marked a sample ballot for the voter to take into the voting booth where he or she voted on the official ballot as indicated by the marked sample. In that way, the campaign worker was not only pleased with the voter as a person, said person was thanked and, if necessary, afterward rewarded with what was left in the bottle of Seagram's 7.

I remember, in particular, my elderly Polish landlady giggling when she said she had been doing this since the 1920s and she "...still no know why."

. . . it's only a sample ballot
. . . but, not really a sample ballot
. . . it's just a flyer, you see
. . . it means nothing

134. Jury Results

I thought the alert system was meant to help keep this site free of abusive behavior not control discussion.

****


On Sat Mar 5, 2016, 09:12 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

Bernie Sanders OMITTED From Chicago Democratic Sample Ballot... More Shenanigans...
http://www.democraticunderground.com/12511421295

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

This is not a ballot. This is such misleading bullshit.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Sat Mar 5, 2016, 09:21 PM, and the Jury voted 1-6 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: ALERTER: STOP WASTING JURY TIME!
The heading says "Sample Ballot" and that's exactly what it is. Jeebus, just STOP being so freaking partisan.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Wow. I can't believe someone alerted on this. It has 95 recs and is no way "disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate". WTF? The alert system is not about silencing discussion. Again, the alert system is not about silencing discussion on a discussion board!
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: This alert is barn dressing.
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: The green band at the top of the sheet identifies it as a sample ballot, legal to carry into the voting booth with you. On the other hand, this is Chicago with a long history of election shenanigans.

Reading for comprehension is good. The sample ballot is not a problem. The poster and alerter are both hypersensitive today. Voluntarily take some time off. We'll all be better for it.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

168. FALSE ALARM: We get this crap all the time.

It's despicable, but as far as I know, it's legal. And it's especially effective for voters who are not paying attention.

In California GEs, it's often used to skew votes on propositions. Democrats receive "sample ballots" with all the Democrats checked (of course) but with some horribly misleading corporatist proposition checked as well.

Well-meaning but uninformed Democrats systematically go through the list as they cast their votes, inadvertently supporting the latest evil proposition from Big Ag, King CONG[sup]*[/sup], or Big Pharma.
