I don’t know how much ballot order effects local elections, it’s traditionally more an issue during large turnout elections when uninformed voters might vote straight ticket. Still, if the person in the No. 1 spot in each race won, the city would have five new council members.

What do you think? Could the ballot order effect the outcome of the city council race?

Possibly except for Mayor and I think the last name wins.
