On the day of voting, I’ve got a question regarding re-election. Nothing spectacular, just a simple one.
If you haven’t been elected, can you call for your own re-election.
Example. Mark Leno was apointed supervisor. His campaign signs say “re-elect Leno”. Now, are you electing him again to the office he held, or electing him a second time. Did Gerald Ford ask to be elected or re-elected? To me it seems it should say Elect, as he has never been elected before. I guess this is a grammer, exact definition question.
