Dominating! See what happens when you don't goose the polls with a 3rd party candidate?

North Carolina Democrats had also rigged the ballot ordering in such a manner that their candidate was always listed first on the ballot.

As part of the excellent election reform law that will no longer be the case.

Why shouldn't the incumbent Senator not be ranked 1st on the ballot everywhere ?

That would be a valid neutral criteria, but it wasn't the case in North Carolina. Senator Burr was 2nd on the ballot in 2010.

The new law gives preference to the party of the winner of the previous Governor election. Other states also use such preferences.
