No need to choose between choosing and losing this November

Ok, so in an effort to demonstrate that our crack editorial staff is indeed a staff, and to get back into the posting game, I went and did a little field work and visited our wonderful friends at the Board of Elections (who were, in fact, extremely friendly, and quite frankly seemed quite surprised and excited to see anybody in their office). My mission? Find out whether there was anything at all on the November 2005 ballot in ACC. Apparently not, unless you live in Winterville. There are two Winterville commission seats up, but that is all. No referendums, no extra SPLOST so we can make the Water Business Office pretty, nothing. So relax young people, no need to worry that you may lose if you get caught up playing XBox and forget to choose. Apparently the ACC vote has been sufficiently rocked until 2006. Which means we'll have to continue in our premature overanalysis of the mayor's race for now (by the way, great to hear from you Andy).

So, is there still time to put something on the ballot? And what exactly is the process on doing that?

Now, damnit, don't ask questions that require actual research to answer. I don't have time for that. I like my political involvement to be easy. Just like it will be this November with nothing on the ballot!

Just kidding, of course, but in all seriousness, I don't know the answer to your question. Did you have something in mind for the ballot?

Hmmm...can we pass a moritorium on Carl Jordan?

Just kidding, I actually like Carl, but lo he does talk.

And by the way, I hear he's been roaming the bars and narking on early smokers. Not cool, Carl. Not cool.

"Early" smokers?

Oh yeah, we don't have early smokers anymore. Shows how long its been since I went downtown after dark.

Sorry, I shouldn't rant about the smoking ban until after 12pm, apparently.
