Looking at NOTA a little differently.
On a personal note, this election cycle has left me as uninterested as I have ever been in who wins the day in far too many races. Try as I might, looking for the half full glass choice escapes any reasonable satisfactory result. Even by leaving a selection blank, it seems as if we cannot do enough to record our dissatisfaction with the choices made available to us. In fact, In 1980, the Canadian rock band Rush, reminded us
“If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice”
But even that ‘choice’ eludes us as an effective solution.
Local (Northern Michigan) writer Tom Kachadurian offers some thoughts worth considering.
