    The instructions for voting a straight party ticket are on the ballot, but could use some reinforcement here.  If you vote straight party:

    a. Unless otherwise noted, a Straight Party
    vote is a vote for ALL candidates of that party
    in PARTISAN OFFICES. It is not necessary
    to mark individual candidates for PARTISAN
    OFFICES if you vote a Straight Party.
    But there IS an exception to this rule, so you have to read the rest, especially (e)
    b. You may vote a Straight Party AND ALSO
    vote for a candidate of a different party in any
    individual office.
    c. In any multi-seat office, a Straight Party
    vote is a vote for ALL candidates of that party.
    If you individually vote for any candidate in a
    multi-seat office, you must also individually
    mark all other candidates in that office for
    whom you wish to vote in order for all votes
    for that office to be counted.
    d. If you do not vote a Straight Party below,
    you may vote by marking each office
    separately.
    e. A Straight Party vote does not include US
    President and Vice President, unaffiliated
    candidates, nonpartisan offices, issues or
    referenda.

    I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.
