It’s time for another Election Day Prediction thread.
On Tuesday polls will be open from 7 am to 8 pm for the special election in the 72nd Assembly District.Â If you’ve been following this race closely (or even if you haven’t), please list your predictions for the outcome.Â There are five candidates.Â In your comment include your forecast for:
Linda Ackerman (R)
Richard Faher (R)
John MacMurray (D)
Chris Norby (R)
Jane Rands (G)
and Turnout percentage (as a tie-breaker)
How it WORKS
The contest will be scored after election results are certified.Â Using percentages to the single decimal place, entries will earn a point based on the difference with the actual result (for example, if you believe Rands will get 33.3% and she gets 29.0, you earn 4.3 points).Â The winner will be the entry with the smallest number of total points.Â Include your prediction of turnout (also as a percent of total registration).Â This will be used in case of a tie in the initial contest.
Those Pesky RULES
You must include a valid email address with your comment.Â One entry per person.Â Comment must be left before polls close at 8 pm.
