In the article "Vote `No and `Yes' to Democracy," June 12, the authors state that the notion of placing "None of the Above" (NOTA) on the ballots has been around for a "few years." Not true.
Since the 1970s, the Libertarian Party has argued in favor of placing NOTA on all ballots. This is not the only idea which the Libertarian Party had advanced which is now being studied more seriously by policymakers. Others include drug legalization and school privatization.
