The Ballot for this years Presidential election is big...really big.

With races for President, senators, judges, representatives and six proposals, this year's ballot is expected to take even longer to complete.

Our news partner, WZZM TV13, reports most communities in Kent County have ballots that are 19 inches, double sided, with some that have a two page ballot which would be a front back and a second page.

That means a longer time spent filling out your ballot, so you'll find more voting booths at the polls to handle, not only the extra length in voting time, but the amount of people expected to turn out.

So, what should you do?  Come prepared. You can bring a cheat sheet if you want, just don't show it to anyone else.  And don't forget to give yourself ample time to read through the ballot.
