Letters: The Sign of a Hurried Hand or Partisan Gamesmanship?-cnbnews.net
Friday, September 30, 2011
On Tuesday night, I obtained a faxed copy of a sample Gloucester City Ward 1 ballot for the November 8th general election. The faxes arrived just as you see here. Note the placement of the "SAMPLE" stamp on the first page. Is it the sign of a hurried hand or partisan gamesmanship? Note that the text is mostly visible on the public question section of the ballot.
The names of the candidates obscured by the stamp are as follows:
Keith Walker - Republican, State Senate
William Levins - Republican, General Assembly
Terrell A. Ratliff - Republican, General Assembly
Ian M. Gill - Public Safety First, Camden County Board of Chosen Freeholders
According to the Camden County Clerks Office, it's unusual that the county would fax a sample ballot in advance, but the county will sometimes send ballots upon request. Sample ballots will be mailed to the residents of Camden County sometime in October, and will also be available online at www.CamdenCounty.com one week before the general election.
