or whatever preposition

Ryan spotted this on his way home from church.  Evidently, you can pretend to vote for it but actually vote against it also.  Secret ballot after all.

The choices are "for" or "against" so in this case the quotes are correct.

Exactly what I was going to say. This one is OK.

bethany said...

um, ok. Is it still funny? kinda. And I don't understand why that makes the quotations necessary.

Ron & Jessica said...

The quotes are necessary because they are quoting something that is written on the ballot.
Sorry, this one's not funny.

Okay, sure, you can make the case. Like "Vote "Yes"!". But it's still funny.

I don't think the quotation marks are incorrect, but I disagree with the claim that they are necessary. Some other way of offsetting or emphasizing the actual wording of the vote would have been my strategy.

After all, one does not see signs saying Vote "Barack Obama".

I think the quotes are incorrect, and that's what makes it funny.

Totally incorrect. A word as a word should always be italicized, not in quotes.

if the quotes weren't there would you get all confused and vote against the bond when you really meant to vote for it? gramatically correct? maybe. unnecessary? definitely.

@R&J - quotation marks are to used to quote. In this instance, they should have made it a different font.
It's a funny sign and made me think they I hope they do vote YES because someone needs to hire good teachers.
Go Waco!!
