Ballot Design with Todd Oldham

Mo Racca for the Times:

Todd Oldham is a renowned American designer. After I invited him to look over some ballots from across the United States, he was dismayed. As he points out in this video, when it comes to the simple task of casting our votes, extreme confusion calls for an extreme makeover.

Spoiler alert: as they note in the video, us Canadians have a standardized ballot coast to coast to coast (not a typo), and a truly independent adjudication committee.
