To vote, please list your choice(s) in order of preference and either
post your choice(s) here, or e-mail your vote to me in privacy.

I welcome all related information about the candidates, and I welcome
new nominations of those that are not Democrats or Republicans
that can be confirmed as such with some certainty.

I *really* wish that you would post your very interesting comments
here for everyone, instead of only sending them to me. I'm only
asking for your ballot here.

It's just an informal count, so I apologize in advance for any
mistake or inconsistencies.

"Many Americans do not realize that we could institute proportional
representation for most elections in the U.S. without amending the
Constitution. In helping to educate the public about the potential
for voting reform, [CV&D] can play a central role in a pro-democracy
movement right here in America!" --John Anderson

1980 independent presidential candidate John B. Anderson has been
nominated to run for president in this mock election.

This has really brought me to a problem, because Anderson
could be the strongest leader possible for nonpartrisan / third
party coalition, but I believe that he is currently registered as a
Republican. But, because both he AND Jesse Jackson have been
nominated in this race, and because both of them are such strong
supporters of proportionalism which would legitimize such a
coalition, I am forced to include both Anderson and Jackson among
the choices in the mock election because both of them have either
switched parties in the past or have publicly indicated that they could
easily leave in the future, and both have been nominated.

With voting still open until April 1st, I would like to post
the results with the first 50 votes in. Libertarian Harry Browne
has jumped out in front of the pack with nine votes. Chompsky is
second with five votes. NOTA and Bogatirev are tied for third with four
votes. Many of the choices were eliminated with 17 ranked ballots.

The mock election will continue until April 1st.
Therefore, I will continue taking ballots until March 31st at 11:59 pm.

I emphasize that candidates needn't be associated with a party
or run for a party. John Anderson ran_against_ the Democratic
nominee in '80, didn't he? And against the Republican.
