• Mr. Matthews: I keep seeing postings on the Corpus Christi Caller-Times by someone who recommends turning in a blank ballot. He says it is a way to protest the presidential choices altogether. Even though I would never, ever turn in a blank ballot for the nominees for president/vice president (never even heard of such a thing until this man started posting), what if someone did? Is it a form of protest and what about the other races (as you mentioned-state, local, etc)? Does your vote still count if you choose to cast your ballot in certain races only? I'm just stumped by this.
