A True Snapshot

The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and take orders later; in a dictatorship you don’t have to waste your time voting.~Charles Burkowski

A mock election event simulates an actual election. The idea is basically to capture a real snapshot of how a candidate will do. The candidate will have an idea of where they stand and possibly project the outcome of the future election. I did not get the experience this past Sunday. A mock election staged at the Kissimmee Lakefront in Florida. I was not going to write about this, but I felt a need to express it and educate those about a mock election.

Let us begin with the mock ballot. It must include all candidates regardless whether they paid for an event booth or not. Make sure all of the candidates represented and listed under the correct seat they are running for. The ballot must include all candidate names in alphabetical order. The outcome will not be accurate if all candidates are not captured on the ballot.

Upon checking in, a citizen must be given the privacy to fill out their ballot. Then the citizen must fold the ballot and drop it in the box before exiting.

On a positive note: The candidates were given the opportunity to participate, interact with future constituents. It was a great way for candidates to gain exposure to the public. Candidates that were present got to introduce themselves, state the seat they are aspiring for and speak about their platforms. There was plenty of photo and video opportunity for the candidates that were at the event.

I welcome your feedback.
