Primary elections usually aren't terribly exciting, but on Thursday the New York City Board of Elections decided to make things a little more challenging by printing candidate's names in seven-point font, which, as the New York Times notes, is "akin to the ingredient list on the side of a cereal box." The Board of Elections explained that while there was ample white space on most ballots, a few districts had many candidates, and the fonts must be uniform. Or they're hoping a heated typography debate will distract from recent allegations of miscounted ballots and discrimination against the disabled.
