Any chance we could get them to establish a system like the one the boys use
to select OA members? You could cast a set number of votes-- or fewer. In
this case, it would be modified to give every voter, say, four votes. you
could cast all 4 to one candidate, or split them up 3/1, 2/2, or 1/3. That
would indicate your true feelings.
You know, like 1 for each of the 4 candidates might say, "They're all the
same to me, but I consider it my duty to vote anyway." Or all 4 to one might
say, "I feel very strongly that he's the one." A split between the two
"nontraditional" candidates could communicate, "I hate the assumption that
only a mainstream candidate wil win, but I don't care for either of these
The possibilities are endless! It would enliven the pollsters, too. <G>
