NEW FORM BALLOT
Election Next Tnesday.-Consti
Voters at the general election to be
held in Idaho next Tuesday will find
that the form of the ballot has been
changed. Instead of a column for
each political party as heretofore, the
names of all the candidates for each
office are printed under the name of
the office and the party designation
to the right of the candidate's name.
Squares appear instead of circles in
which to mark the X. The voter
must start at the top of the first
column and go down the entire list
marking a cross after each candidate
for whom be desires to vote. The
new form of ballot eliminates the big
circle at the top by which straight
ticket voting was formerly facilitated.
Besides the candidates, there are
five important proposed constitutional
amendments to lie voted on, Some
of these should he adopted and others
defeated. The proposed amendments
