Time Event
In Nevada, Nobody Won
"None of These Candidates" wins Democratic gubernatorial primary. Alas, unlike WSFS, where No Award can actually win the Hugo (in which case no trophy goes to anyone) or Site Selection (where the Business Meeting can sort out candidates), in this case, the second-place finisher, who had a mere 25% of the votes and therefore was disliked by 3/4 of the electorate, is the official nominee for the general election this fall.

Meanwhile, in case one thinks one's vote is irrelevant, here in Fernley, with about 20,000 residents, only about 10% voted in the mayor's race, and only about 400 voted in my city council ward. That makes my vote for council a whopping 0.2% of the entire electorate in my ward. That might not sound like much, but it's a larger percentage than my percentage of the last Worldcon site selection.

Current Mood: thoughtful
