Stop, get it right before continuing early voting

Could this election for the consolidated government’s representatives get more weird? We’ve already had shifting dates -- from Nov. 5 to July 16, now Sept. 17 -- two qualifying periods, a dispute in the local Democratic Party ranks about who sits on the Board of Elections, a lawsuit filed by one of the candidates to keep the July date and a challenge to another candidate’s residency. Now, it has been discovered that 788 voters living well inside District 3 were showing up on the rolls of District 2. We are 17 days from the election and early voting started Aug. 26.
