are there any interesting elections going on where you live?  in california we’ll be voting on whether to legalize and tax weed (http://www.pressdemocrat.com/article/20101018/articles/101019555?p=1&tc=pg).  there is also a senatorial race (incumbent barbara boxer v carly fiorina, formerly of hp) and governor’s race (jerry brown, former guv running again, v meg whitman, formerly of ebay).

Anyone know where to find the voter guide? It listed different organizations and their positions for all the California propositions.

Senate race here in Washington is pretty close, even though it shouldn’t be.  For a liberal state like ours, you’d think the Republican party would select a more moderate candidate.  Instead, we have a guy who ran & LOST the election for governor (twice), is a former real estate businessman with shady deals, and has made public statements about REPEALING Wall Street reforms.

Aiyah.

^^i don’t think prop 19 has a lot of answers about what will actually happen if it passes.  some pro-pot people are also worried about pot becoming very corporate and too regulated.  i’ll probably vote yes unless there are great reasons against it.
