Lawmaker Wants 'None of the Above' on Ballot

New Hampshire legislators are considering a bill that would add "none of the above" to election ballot each November and if "NOTA," as it's called, wins, then a new election would be held, the New Hampshire Union Leader reports.

The sponsor said "he believes the 'none of the above' option would lead to cleaner and more positive elections, free of the constant attacks that Granite Staters have become so accustomed to. After all, he said, no candidate wants to suffer the ultimate embarrassment of being beaten by, literally, no one."

Peter Weber: "That's just what our democracy needs."
