Vote Today! Burstein for Library Trustee

This is it. Today, Tuesday, May 4, 2010, is town Election Day in Brookline, Massachusetts. As I've mentioned before, I'm running for re-election for Library Trustee.

If you live in Brookline, I hope you'll cast one of your four votes for me.

Nomi and I and our volunteers will be out at the polling places today, so if you see us, say hello.

And if you're a voter who is still trying to make up your mind, feel free to visit my website to learn all about what I've done for the library in my first two terms as a Library Trustee:

Burstein for Brookline

Comments

What you describe is essentially how it works in Brookline's town elections. Any number of candidates can run, and voters don't rank the candidates but vote for as many as they want up to the number of positions. In my case, there were five candidates running for four seats, and voters could vote for up to four people.

Last year we had a contested School Committee race in which two incumbents and two challengers were running for three seats. So many people supported one or the other challenger, that they did a lot of "bullet voting," voting only for the challenger they supported and just assuming that the two incumbents would get re-elected. Instead, one incumbent lost his seat – which is why I mounted such a serious campaign this year.
