Ballot Positioning Determined By Drawing Numbers

Posted by wlpo on November 5, 2009

Joanne McNally of Mendota has won the lottery!  But not the type of lottery your probably thinking.

McNally’s number was picked by the La Salle County Clerk to be first on the primary ballot, above her challenger and fellow Republican, Stephen Carlson.  The drawing was done yesterday.  McNally is trying to unseat Carlson on the La Salle County Board.

Some studies say candidates improve their chances of winning an election by as much as 10 percent by being first on the ballot.
