"Art, Top of the ballot would be the Big Ones, like President....then you get the Governor, Senator, House of Representatives....then you get the ones that are listed further down on the ballot, like Amendments, Sheriff, School Board Members. It's like Top of the Food Chain is Prez and bottom is maybe School Board Members.....You could think of it as a Pay Scale....Big Bucks at the top and then go on down to the lowest paid job on the Elected positions." - LD

Oh! So "downballot" means "down at the bottom of the ballot." Like when you're voting and you get to the bottom, which are the "downballot" races. I think I understand now. Geez I can be thickheaded sometimes.
