Voting for dummies

Bill in House would remove straight-party voting option

A bill that would eliminate the option of voting a straight party ticket with one selection has been introduced in the Kentucky House, but backers say the measure's outcome is uncertain.

Kentucky is one of 17 states, most of them in the South or the Rust Belt, whose ballots offer a straight-ticket option.

I can see why some would not want this removed it would require the voter to actual think about the choices. If voters start thinking they might realize what a crook the incumbent is.
