Red Ballot, Blue Ballot?

Clerks criticize color ballots
September 30, 2010

In the political world, red often symbolizes Republican and blue means Democrat.

In Massachusetts, however, another tradition reverses those colors. And Cape Cod's town clerks say it's time for a change.

Statewide, the top of Democratic primary ballots are red and the Republican primary ballots are blue. This has been the norm for 50 years, said Brian McNiff, spokesman for the secretary of state, who oversees Massachusetts elections.

"We were doing this long before blue state, red state went into vogue," McNiff said.

I noticed this at the primary election and thought it was a bit ironic.
