One of the local television stations here was running a promo about an upcoming story on one of their newscasts: is it a good idea to include the option, “None of the Above” on ballots?
I didn’t get to see the actual newscast — I was working, after all — but it seems that there are people who think it’s a fabulous idea. Are you one of them?
Vote in the poll on the sidebar, then feel free to discuss in the comments here. Is “None of the Above” a valid option for a ballot? Is it worth standing in line at a polling place to then essentially vote for no one? And what happens if that option actually wins?
What do you think?
