I was impressed when I received my "voter's guide". What a great idea! Want to place a bet on how many people actually read the things? How about how many people could understand the writings?

When I voted, I was one of a very tiny number who had the booklet in hand to help with the voting. There is no way someone could "just remember" each issue. In my office, only two people actually read the manual and planned how to vote. Even the boss did not read it!

Now about understanding. The booklet was written for a high school education. Sounds like it should be easy to read, right? For you and me, maybe. For the non-voting populace that NEEDS to represent themselves - no way. The booklet was probably the reason many of those people did not vote!

The guide was good, but not that good! It was also full of thinly veiled propaganda. It still looks like a NO Vote!
