This year's ballot felt more painful than previous ballots. Usually we have one or two initiatives and then a handful candidates to look through. This then takes about an hour to sift through the initiatives and then look at the history and credentials of the candidates. This year however we have a plethora of initiatives. Plethora! Luckily for me, the candidates made it a little bit easy for me in their selection. Basically if they called me, I didn't vote for them. I would rather write in myself than to vote for someone that has some frakkin' recording call me just to smear another human being.
Seriously don't call me. I vote and I can do my own research. Our phone normally receives one call a week. In the last two weeks, we have received 18 calls.
