...And what have I got? Bupkis!
Well, except for my homework: verifying my polling place, looking up the candidates, seeing who's incumbent and who's not; we've got a full slate (4) of Libertarians running for the at-large seats on the City-County Council, including Broad Ripple stalwart Bill Levin, who gets my vote immediately. (There's one incumbent LP candidate, but he's not at-large nor is he from our district; our incumbent is the painfully sincere Republican Ryan Vaughn. I'll vote for him, too, and hope he stays as dewey-eyed).
Interestingly -- especially if you study how these things affect results -- in every race, Mayoral, Council at-large and by district, the listing is in strict party order: Democrat, Republican, Libertarian. Bit of a stacked deck?
Anyway, I try to do some research and I usually go vote for people as crazy as I am. If that bothers you, there's only one defense: vote right back at me!
