Spanish term or phrase:Lista sábana
The notion that by casting your vote, you vote for every politician on that list. Is there a similar concept in US Politics? Even if the concept was from a hisotrical past and no longer exists, can someone suggest something similar in the US or UK?
A voter who votes for all candidates of one party rather than choosing from candidates of different parties in each race on the ballot is a straight ticket voter. Many states, like Texas, make it relatively easy to vote a straight ticket by offering voters the option to check just a single box to select all candidates running under a single party label.
Straight-ticket voting (also called straight-party voting) allows voters to choose a party’s entire slate of candidates. Voters make one punch or mark on the ballot in order to vote for every candidate of that party for each office on the ballot.
