After Four Recounts, Tie Vote Exists for Recorder of Deeds in Kent County, Delaware — 4 Comments

  1. With Delaware being one of the smallest states (3 counties) a 3rd party ought to be making good progress there. I think there are 2 or 3 3rd parties recognized with ballot position.

    As I’ve pointed out before, run candidates on the local level, where you can get on a face to face relationship with voters, so that your party affiliation might not even factor in their desire to support your candidacy.

    Too bad, it wasn’t a Libertarian who was one of those tied in this contest for this local office. Regardless of the outcome, just think of the media exposure which you get – free of cost.

  2. Sounds like these two candidates need to find their Bud Johnson “voter” (Re: the movie, “Swing Vote”). Then find Richard Petty. After all, there is a NASCAR track in Dover.

  3. One candidate, Gunn, has used personal smear tactics against his opponent and has cited phony issues about “fraud” in recording documents. The Recorder of Deeds is only a clerk and has no control over fraudulent documents which appear OK other face.
