Choosey Voter One voter at a North Alton polling place was not only sure of which party he wanted to vote for in the primary election Tuesday, but even was sure of the color of. ballot ho would use. When tlw clerk queried him about the party ballot, the voter asking (jokingly) what was the difference. He was told one color was for the Republican party and another for the Democratic. The voter's wife replied "Oh. just write pink or blue." Withouf the least hesitation (and a perfectly straightface) the husband wrote in his color and asked for a ballot of the same hue at the same time. He was handed the* proper ballot, but not until the voter was in the booth marking it had the clerk noticed that the party was not indicated—only the color. The ballot was properly cast and counted—he hopes.
