    The Random Voter ID number cannot be disclosed per the Legal Code

    Random Voter ID nonsense

    See title of thread. And also, shouldn't each office still list the option to abstain? I believe that right is constitutionally protected, and not showing it as an option throws any election into question.

    Return GS to the Court -- it needs experienced new blood!

    The Court of The North Pacific is in a rut. It seems incapable of taking action when it should to address those issues that impede trials and meaningful reform, and has issued decisions on review that often seem more partisan written in a logic that is often hard to follow as it careens...
