It is important to me to review a copy of the voting ballot in The Press (and The Express) in advance of an election to familiarize myself with the candidates, particularly down ballot, and the propositions. It is an opportunity to prepare in advance of standing at the voting booth.
It is also appreciated that the ballots were published in the October 22 edition in advance of early voting, which started October 24.
My (90-plus-year-old) neighbor called me to ask if I would look at the propositions in the paper and read them to her. She tried to do so with three different magnifying glasses, to no avail.
I (62 years old and with perfect vision with my glasses) had to use a magnifying glass myself.
I read the propositions to her, pointed out the detailed article regarding them on page A9, and we were both comfortable with the information so we would know how to cast our respective votes.
Please further the service of providing this important information to the public by using a larger, more legible format. Thank you.
