    So basically what the Justice Department is saying is that blacks are too stupid to vote for who they want unless it has the word "democrat" on the ballot....how F'd UP is that?

    From the source quoted in your post.

    It follows, therefore, that the elimination of party affiliation on the ballot will likely reduce the ability of blacks to elect candidates of choice.
    What they said with this one line is that despite months of watching campaign ads and, even looking up the different peoples history, blacks will not be able to tell who they like with just a persons name on a ballot. It HAS to have party affiliation on those ballots. That to me is nothing short of calling them stupid. Especially when you consider that the party affiliation was only being taken away from the ballots. Not any ads or such.

    There are not typically any ads for local races in my city of around 60k. I doubt there are any in a town of 15k. We also don't have party affiliation for local races on our ballots. It bugs me, I wish they did.

    With leaders like Jackson and Sharpton, I fear many blacks will continue to believe that the only way they can prosper is by believing that most whites are racist, and need to pay reparations for past offenses through govt programs.

    Basically they're saying that white people are racist, and won't vote for black candidates. If you include the party of the candidate, though, white people will vote for the black candidate without knowing it because they just choose straight party ticket. Since black people are the majority of the voting-age population (even though they're ususally a minority of the electorate), it's obviously unfair if the candidate they like (but don't vote for in sufficient numbers) loses. Therefore, removing party labels will cause white people to actually look at the candidates and, since white people are racist, cause the black candidates to lose, which violates the Voting Rights Act. The reason it violates the VRA is that making white people aware of who they are voting for has the effect "of denying or abriging the right to vote on account of race, color or membership in a language minority group"

    Absolutely ridiculous
    Wow, that's just absolutely terrible.

    Then how do you find out who's running for some position? No newspapers? Nothing on local radio or news? Nothing at all? Town hall meetings? Anything? Pamphlets?

    In my village of 1500, which is part of a town of around 8k, there are tons of ads in the village paper. There have been letters to the editor going back and forth for weeks, and a week before the election, the paper prints a copy of what the ballot will look like.

    This time around, the big controversy is over the Town Justice seat. There are two candidates - one who is not a lawyer at all, and thus will have no idea what the hell he's doing, and one whose "firm" has served as the town lawyer for years, who will thus have a conflict of interest on 90% of cases. Thank god we don't have a rational system where state judges are actually appointed based on merit.
