Secretary of State Debra Bowen has randomly drawn letters from the alphabet for candidates ballot placement. In the 1st District Race the first name on the ballot will be Annette DeModena, then Cheryl Seidner then Rex Bohn. In a race with three candidates, that can mean a 5% boost for Annette.
In the 3nd District, Mark Lovelace will be first on the ballot and then Karen Brooks.
In the 2nd District it will be Clif Clendenen first, then Estelle Fennell.
This is something each campaign has no control of. Luck of the draw. May the best person win in the end!
