WOW - I didn't know this. This ought to be a plus for the GOP of 1+% at the top of the ticket, and even more at the bottom of the ticket.

It should have always been that way.

Vote a person into office....not a "party".

It makes it much more difficult for semi-literates that usually vote Democratic.

Of course it will help GOP. Most dims are so ignorant about candidates, they merely punch the dim button and think that they will be helping themselves to more U.S. taxpayers $$$$$.

Having to spell, search for a candidate whose name they can't remember will cause more and more of them to give up standing in line behind other idiot dims and go home!!!!!

I never vote a straight party ticket. Brings me great joy to mark my ballot for each Republican individually.

Jessie Hi-Jackson is surely on a plane on the way to the rescue. As soon as he gets there and finds a camera, he will announce how:

"This disenfranchises dumb-ass voters like myself, who find marking in for each individual Democrat candidate, very difficult and mentally taxing. This gives too much of an advantage to Republicans, who could afferd a good edumacation."

Definitely a plus for the GOP in down ballot races.
The Democrats have a lot of straight party ticket punchers,
don't know what the numbers are though.

"They are far more likely to agree with me, or at least be in the same universe as me, than the, ummm, "other" party. And here in TX, we can vote a straight ticket and then pick individuals of the other party when we review our ballot."

Yes, I do that and I like that. I review and vote *twice* in effect, first straightparty to get the GOP names selected, then go race by race to make sure it's right.

Just a dumb question?

Will there be R's and D's beside the names?

This is my first time voting in MO.

I have always voted straight Republican, however I was planning on picking and choosing this year anyway.

I am definitely voting against Odenwald in St. Louis County.

He is the guy that has spearheaded the drive to take away business owner's rights by banning smoking in private establishments.

His opponent Dooley, a Democrat, has tried to make a common sense approach possible...signs to tell you if a place is smoking or non.

I never thought conservatives would be for taking away peoples rights!

It's amazing. GA lost it's straight ticket just as the republicians started winning.

I saw it as the Dems wanted to stop people from voting straight ticket so they wouldn't lose quite so much.

I've never voted for a Democrat in my life but I will vote "no" to retain some pro abortion Republican judges.

28 percent doesn't seem like a small margin to me.



"She noted that a small margin of the total votes cast in November of 2004 were straight tickets.

Of the 45,369 votes cast for governor in 2004, only 28 percent voted a straight-ticket."
