I Voted!

I went and voted today before work. I was in and out in about 15 minutes. One thing that I did find interesting was that on all the partisan races, the Republican was listed first. Is that because I registered as a Republican or did others who aren't registered Republicans experience the same thing? I was expecting the names to be listed in alphabetical order.

Names are listed according to the preference of the County Clerk. In Davis County and much of Utah with Republican clerks, the Republican goes first. In Salt Lake County (with a Democratic clerk) the Democrats go first. No rhyme or reason beyond partisans trying to gain any advantage they can.

Davis Didjeridu,
Thanks for that information.
