City Council last night voiced
concern over the possibility
that the ballot submitted by the
City Election Commission for
preferential voting (PV) in the
mayoral election will confuse
voters and cause significant in-
validation of ballots.
Preferential voting is a City
Charter amendment passed by
local voters in November
which allows a ,voter to list
an infinite number of choices
for mayor. PV was drawn up
by the Human Rights Party
(HRP) with the intention of
safeguarding against the elec-
tion of a candidate receiving
less than a majority of votes.
"I THINK we are now seeing
what a cathartic system pre-
ferential voting it," Councilman
Louis Belcher (R-Fifth Ward)
told council. "We've got such a
massive problem that we have
to be concerned about whether
voters will be disenfranchised
or not. After one try at this
voters will be ready to go back
to the old system."
Belcher said he fears that
d e s p i t e instructions ac-
companying each ballot, voters
unfamiliar with the new sys-
tem will incorrectly mark their
mayoral choices. Placing an
"X," for example, instead of
a number "1" or "2" next to
a candidates name would in-
validate a ballot.
Councilman John McCormick
(R-Fifth Ward) said he had
heard that "an estimated 20 per
cent of votes would be spoiled"
due to incorrect ballot marking.
STRESSING his concern for
voter education in regard to
preferential PV voting, Mayor
James Stevenson said, "I would
like Council to authorize or ask
me to send copies of ballots out
to voters with clear instructions
on how to vote and on possible
dangers in voting."
"Such a letter would have its
advantage coming from the'
highest office in the city," said1
Councilman Jamie Kenwor-
thy (D-Fourth Ward) opposed
Stevenson's suggestion saying,
"If sent, the letter should come
from the city clerk and not
from you since you are a can-
didate for mayor."
council that he "was not plan-
ning to send a campaign let-,
ter," but Democratic council
members continued to voice op-
"It would be highly unethical
if not totally out of line to have
Jim Stevenson send this letter
out," objected councilwoman
Colleen McGee (D-First Ward).
It would cost the city an esti-
mated $8,000 to send first class
letters to its 80,000 voters. E
