This article ends with "Judicial races in Washtenaw County are nonpartisan ...". This is technically accurate, but is also misleading (or is it?) as it implies races elsewhere (such as Wayne County) are partisan. (They are not, all judicial races in Michigan are nonpartisan). Writing the sentence as "Judicial races
in Washtenaw County are nonpartisan ..." is also correct, and with fewer words; and presumably (?) less misleading.
- Is the original sentence misleading?
- If so, is there a name for the unintuitive phenomenon where adding words makes a sentence less it accurate?
