The Other New Hampshire Primary Ballot

An Occupy New Hampshire production, of course. Should the US have a cabinet level Dept. of Peace?"

Posted on

There will be more than one ballot available to New Hampshire voters tomorrow: the regular one, featuring the Republican presidential candidates, and the alternative one from Occupy New Hampshire and some other local activist groups, which will be distributed to voters as they leave the polls.

The ballot includes options like "Should the US have a cabinet level Dept. of Peace?" and "Which would you choose? Democracy _____ Empire _____."

Occupy New Hampshire organizer Mark Provost said that the ballots are to be filled out on-site at about two dozen polling stations statewide.
