The Random Ballot

The ballot to replace California Gov. Gray Davis could include 158 names, the Los Angeles Times reports. The final candidate list 'will be certified Wednesday by the secretary of state.'

Then, Political State Report says the secretary of state will then 'draw a random alphabet to determine ballot order. Then, that random alphabet is rotated through the state assembly districts, meaning that ballots will not only differ by ballot design, but order as well.'

'So, in one county, Schwarzenegger could be on the first page, and Bustamante on the last page. The good news is that the randomized alphabet is consistent throughout the state, it just starts at a different point in each assembly district.'
(via Political Wire)

A random order for a random group of candidates.
