  1. And what is even just as nice is that this same newspaper usually prints a listing of all of the offices that were contested and the people who received write-in votes for that office in that last election. At least in their on-line version. While I may think this newspaper is mostly an ultra liberal, vigorously anti-Trump rag, they do manage to get some things right now and then.
