When Voters Face an Embarrassment of Riches

November 23, 2000

The ballot in Palm Beach County, Fla., could have been a lot simpler and clearer if there had been fewer than 10 parties listed ("At the Voting Booth, a Graphic Example of the Power of the Visual," Nov. 10). That is 20 candidates' names (president and vice president). Perhaps the intention was to make our democracy stronger by including every fringe party, but now this inclusiveness has contributed to a constitutional crisis.
