Still, five years from now, don’t expect the New York Yankees’ captain to be a unanimous selection to baseball’s Hall of Fame. That’s not a knock. He’d be in pretty impressive company. Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Ted Williams, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and Cal Ripken Jr. all dominated the game, and all came up short. Tom Seaver, the top vote-getter by percentage, was left off five ballots. If there’s anyone worthy of ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-584462772014-09-23T23:28:58.199-06:00" id="#license-2014-09-23T23:28:58.199-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

But at the end of a hearing on a lawsuit that challenges the Utah Board of Education election process, U.S. District Court Judge Clark Waddoups only ordered that the names of two previously rejected candidates be placed on the ballot for the November election. That decision followed Waddoups’ ruling last Friday that the process of picking state school board candidates for the ballot is ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Fourth District Judge Claudia Laycock’s ruling — the first of its kind in recent memory — has left officials scratching their heads, however, since it appears state law does not give the judge the authority to order a new election.

This week I went to the office of our county clerk and discovered that there are no brochures that describe the process. I have the following concerns: 1. What is the process for counting the ballots? 2. How do we ensure the ballot is secret, and who sees the ballot? 3. How do we know that our vote is cast or counted? Any feedback? 4. How can we ensure that our ballots are received? Suppose the ballo...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
