The Porsche story would be more valid if cars varied in the relative position of their brake pedals, i.e., sometimes the clutch was in the middle, sometimes on the left, sometimes on the right. But, fortunately, there are such things as "common practice" or industry standards!
In Arizona we had about 25 "Propositions" to vote on, a bunch of never-heard-of judges to boot or keep, etc, etc.
I don't know why the US (arguably the most technically advanced country in the world) still has the archaic voting system that it has.
I can't (for me, at least) imagine how anybody, let alone 19,000 people, would have voted for 2 people for president, knowing that those ballots would be discarded. Why put forth the effort? Few enough people vote in this country -- those people's vote should count, shouldn't it?
Sorry for the rant, but perhaps in future elections, people will exercise the right to vote -- I hope it will be over the internet!!
