Democrat Teresa LaPore Creates Another Confusing Ballot

We all remember Teresa LaPore, whose butterfly ballot confused elderly and incompetent voters in palm Beach County in 2000. Well, she has done it again!

Seems she has decided to require voters to "connect the arrow" rather than simply using a standard "fill the circle" technique that most Americans are familiar with. This could be a real problem, because
"People do the crazier things when they're asked to connect the arrows," said Stephen Ansolabehere, a former director of the Voting Technology Project, a collaboration between CalTech and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

I guess they are already prepping for Kerry's post-defeat strategy.
