One of the judicial vacancies (Reyes if you’re interested) had two people running who both had a few “not recommended” decisions by various bar associations and, for some reason, had a write in spot, so of course I wrote myself in! Many of the other vacancy spots didn’t have a write in so I’m not sure why this one was special. The vagaries of the voting ballot.
If I were a little more forward thinking, I could have had all of my friends vote for me as well. Given that I was the 47th person to vote for my precinct today, I don’t think it would have taken that many votes to put me in contention. Yep, that’s right, I was 47th in a pool of around 1000. The workers joked to me that they bet that they can hit 50 before the night is done. Ah, democracy.
