RE: Florida "Audio Ballot" Standards
You're not being obtuse
I don't know whether
Florida has recall or not, but that is another case. The fundamental case however is
when they vote for the first candidate in a ten candidate vote-for one
race. The other nine candidates are no longer "available" to
vote-for. In the visual world, we turn off their vote boxes.
Right now for VIBS
we play these candidates for the voter just so they know who they missed out on
voting, but the voter can't actually do anything with these
candidates. This is tedious if they know who they wanted to vote
for (presumably the normal case), and it is especially tedious when they don't
care about the race at all.
Hence the need for a
flag. I suspect most right-thinking jurisdictions will want to skip the
disabled candidates. Florida if they stick to this requirement will have
to let them play.
Florida does not have straight party voting. The only race types
Florida ever uses are "candidate" and "question". Pardon me for being
obtuse, but in what situation would a Florida voter not know what candidates
would have been available to them in the first
