The long ballot in SD

Just a brief followup to Thad’s post on the long ballot. In South Dakota, some election officials are reporting that the ballot is so long, that absentee voters are stopping by the elections office, picking up the ballot, and taking it home with them.

I am sympathetic, of course. Book One of my two-volume 2006 Oregon voting guide arrived last week. I wait in eager anticipation for the second volume. All I need is 300 pages of reading before election day!
