Merl Reagle's Crossword

"Ballot Boxes"
NOTE: Four squares in this puzzle must remain empty (After all, you don't fill in every blank when you vote, right?) The Downs behave normally (mostly), but the Across answers have a left-right thing going on with some of the empty squares (as you'll see). Otherwise, this is just a little reminder to vote.
