Ballot design and the Jewish vote – a teachable moment

All of us recall the stories from Florida in 2000 when many Jews complained about how they mistakenly voted for Bush instead of Gore due to the poor ballot design. It is hard to fathom that Jews, who represent around 1 percent of the total population of the United States and Europe, but have received more than 20 percent of Nobel Prizes would have difficulty with a ballot design but that is what it was. Based on the following, perhaps they finally have somebody who can teach them how to vote without making a single mistake!

A bizarre series of episodes from the 2012 election are drawing increased attention. According to a report at The Blaze, in over 59 precincts of Philadelphia, plus 9 precincts in Cleveland, Ohio, not a single vote was cast for Mitt Romney.
