Falconer: Election Law

An interesting tale (via the P-J) from one of the local villages: a ballot error may have effects on today's mayoral election. The ballot will be correct at the polling places, but the absentee ballots sent out previously will contain the mistake. The error appears to be related to the interpretation of one section of law, setting the number and/or arrangement of ballot lines per candidate. A local man running under the label of an independent body was bumped to Row D when the law seems to read he should have been at Row C.
