So when Jeb Bush, Governor of Florida, appoints a State Commissioner

Did you not watch the mess in 2000?  The *counties* decided how their ballot
would be constructed and how the elections would be run.  Now how is Jeb
Bush and/or his Commissioner going to influence *Democratic* counties run by
*Democrats*?

Simple answer is, he *isn't*.

Simply issuing an edict that candidates shall be listed alphabetically 
(and leaving the rest to the slight "first candidate listed" bias) 
would suffice unless the Democrats fielded somebody who's name started 
with 'A'....

Except that state law *explicitly* places that responsibility in the hands
of the county election board for *that very reason*.

Might want to study up a bit - political machines from Boss Tweed to 
Richard Daley have had absolutely *no* problems in getting the ballot 
to go the way they wanted....

Yes, *before* electronic balloting.
