Another New Jersey Newspaper Covers Ballot Column Issue

The South Jersey Times has this story about the drawing for ballot placement in Gloucester County, drawing attention to the fact that Democratic and Republican Party nominees always get the top spots on the ballot and their own party column, whereas all other candidates are put helter-skelter into a “Nomination by Petition” column (although a handful of counties don’t use party columns).

New Jersey has the most discriminatory ballots in the nation, but there has never before been so much New Jersey press attention to the problem.
