Letter: Add ‘none of the above’ to every ballot

We desperately need “none of the above” added as a choice for each position on every ballot.
If “none of the above” won, the person with the most votes would still get the job. No candidate could declare they got a mandate if “none of the above” got more than 10 percent of the votes cast.
Hopefully, that would cause all parties to pick better candidates.

Hopefully, that choice would bring out voters who just stay home because there’s no point to voting. If those voters came out, they might take the time to vote on issues placed on the ballot.
