did you know this?

Nevada voters can choose "none of the above" on their ballots. Democrats think a number of voters who dislike Reid will find Angle too extreme and inexperienced, and they will choose "none of the above" to register their discontent.

If enough voters do so, it just might hand Reid a fifth term.

  • Well that is unproductive. They helped elected an extreme, inexperienced pres. Why take issue with Angle's inexperience or conservative tendencies?

  • Does a "none of the above" vote count as one for Prince Harry? Or is it kind of a "not voting, but I was here" thing?

  • If they choose none of the above, how would that be a vote for dirty Harry.

  • wouldn't a none of the above be the same as just not voting?

  • As someone who first started voting in Nevada, I always found this option amusing. It is technically possible to elect nobody (in which case the second runner up gets it). Some places do write in ballots. I'm even less comfortable with those.

  • yes, but I still think there is no way the people who live there are that unintellectual that they won't figure that out.
