Unfair Elections in Indiana

Tuesday, 07 November 2000 12:00 AM

We pretend to present fair, unbiased, open elections to the people. Yet, in some places, nothing could be further from the truth.

Did you know that in the state of Indiana all the Democrats on the ballot are highlighted in yellow? I kid you not. When I started getting phone calls on my radio show from startled Indiana voters, I thought they were joking. So I checked it out, and it’s true. When one goes to the polls in the Hoosier state, as one looks at the ballot, all the Democrats are highlighted in yellow. It has something to do with an Indiana edict that says that the party in control in the state gets to have all of its candidates highlighted in yellow.

Fair and unbiased elections in America, eh? What’s more American than the heartland state of Indiana? Yet highlighting one particular party’s candidates in yellow on the ballot is one of the most incredibly stupid, biased things I’ve ever heard of.

Imagine some of the uneducated and uninformed voters who went into a voting booth this week and voted for the highlighted candidate. Let’s face it, not all voters are rocket scientists. Besides, wouldn’t it feel a little weird NOT to vote for the candidate who is highlighted in yellow?

I love Indiana. Great basketball tradition and all that. But let’s face it, its policy of highlighting Democrats is pretty goofy. We’ll soon find out if the highlighted party will win or lose Too bad that in Indiana, the outcome won’t be arrived at fairly.
