Voter Dilemmas

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at February 29, 2004 6:59 PM

A few further questions about Tuesday's ballot:

  • Since it is highly likely that I will move out of Contra Costa county within a month or two, is it ethical for me to vote on county measure L and the school district measure J?

  • Is Tom McClintock's opposition to Prop 57 sufficient reason to vote for it?

  • Why do opponents of ballot measures always seem so enamored of the caps lock key when writing the "Argument Against" section of the voter guide?

  • Since it is almost thermodynamically unlikely that my vote on any of these issues will affect the outcome, why am I spending so much time thinking about them?

Travis...I think you might be thinking too much...thermodynamically speaking, of course... :)

Where are you moving?

Probably Albany, which is just over the county line. I'm being forced out of my current apartment so the landlord can sell the units as condos.

Looooovely...nothing like eviction to start your year out right...

Yeah, well, we'll see how the soon-to-be-former landlord likes it when I vote for the property tax hike tomorrow!

That'll show him.
