Mailbag: How About “None of the Above” Option

Dang: The best alternative system I’ve heard of is the requirement that “None of the Above” be on every ballot. When “None of the Above” gets a majority, then there is a new election held with all new candidates.

DFO: I’d love a none-of-the-above option on the Idaho ballot, to send a message to individuals who are going to win simply because they belong to the right political party. In some districts, a Democrat doesn’t have a chance of winning, even though, in some case, they’re far more qualified to serve than the Republican.
