Vote. It’s important.

I’ll be honest, i don’t care who you voted for. I care that voted. I posted this to facebook but wanted to post it here too. I decided to share how I voted this year.

I voted Obama (no surprise) and Democrat on the various seats and such.

I voted Yes on S. I can’t see any downside and if it makes our states hiring practices a little more modern I’m ok with that. Also I don’t oppose Vets getting more preference in hiring.

I voted YES on 64. I don’t smoke pot. I don’t care who does and much like cigarettes what you do in your house or car or not around me is your business. Plus more than anything. I want to tax the shit out of pot heads. I mean prohibition doesn’t work, taxing things does.

I voted NO on 65. I’m actually very in favor of what this initiative was trying to do, but from what I’ve read about it it’s too poorly written and doesn’t actually outline how things would be enforced, etc. I hate gray areas in legislation. I hope this can come back with a more thought out execution.

I voted YES on Question 2A. I’ll be honest I wasn’t sure about it, but from the wording on the ballot (I couldn’t find a website with pros/cons and lost my pamphlet) it sounds like it won’t cost anything, but gives wider controls on using existing monies. I’m ok with that.

I voted NO on 3A and 3B. Sorry parents and kids. I love schools I want American children to be the smartest ever but throwing more money and debt at broke models isn’t the solution. I could rant on this forever but I won’t. So i voted no.

Oh and I voted to retain all our judges. Judges are a hard one for me. I’ve never met them, they don’t campaign (often at least), and so I don’t know about them. I used this site to help.

How’d you vote? Share or don’t that’s your prerogative.
