This may be shocking…but it definitely made me chuckle when I was voting.
This morning as I stood at the voting both I cracked a smile, particularly when I read the names of some of the parties listed under Lieutenant Governor and Congressional Representative. And then I laughed. Out loud. Really? Is that legal?
Only in Rhode Island.
Oh, and yes, that is a straight party voting option. In Rhode Island you can check a box at the beginning of the ballot to vote for all candidates of one party. It’s quite controversial to say the least.
