People around my area have been asking me, as a candidate for California State Senate, how I am filling out my ballot.  So one of my daughters made a video, taken as I filled out my ballot, while I put in my picks.  Most of the dialogue is improvised.

That video is below; feel free to share it.  You will also get a sense of what I'm really like -- but what the hell, I'm posting it anyway.  It's 9 minutes, so in case you don't feel like watching it, here are the picks.  And, oh yeah, visit my website, follow my Facebook page, and if you're flush and interested in promoting both Reform Democrats and the Occupy movement -- please feel welcome to donate!  (Write me directly for a physical mail address.)

President:  Barack H. Obama
U.S. Senate:  David Levitt, though I'll support Feinstein in November unless he wins
Congress: Jay Chen
State Senate: Seneca Doane (real name in video)
State Assembly: Gregg Fritchle
Judge: the incumbent
County School Board: Mary Galuska, a Republican
Prop 28 (term limit reform): Yes
Prop 29 (cigarette tax): Yes
County Measure A (appointed Public Administrator): No
County Measure B (mild pension reform): Yes
City Measure E (school bond): Yes
And if I lived down the street in Fullerton, I'd vote for Sharon Quirk-Silva for Assembly, yes on recalling McKinley, probably no on Bankhead, still undecided on Jones, and for Doug Chaffee, Glenn Georgieff, and Paula Williams.

Here I am!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
