    Generally oppose amending the State Constitution this way. When it doubt, vote no. I think there is only one or at most two that should be passed.

          Just wish they'd send a damn sample ballot already. Less than a month away, still don't have it.

          I will be supporting a lot of them as some are an extension of good things they have already done but this will be crazy on election day with the lines backed up. I will definitely be early voting.

              There’s always ulterior motives with these amendments. Dot Gov’s slice of the pie never gets smaller.

                99% of the time vote no. Even if it appears to be reasonable at the moment because tomorrow it will likely not be.

                    Not sure about 6,7,9, 10 and 11 without looking into them further.

                    No on Amendment 4 and yes on the others.

                    I guess one good thing about these amendments is that it takes another 60% vote to undo them once put in place unlike a legislative act. I can see stuff sounding good but should be handled other ways however.

                      Even with the warning I went in blind on half of these and like Detroit said it doesn't really explain what exactly they will do with many of them. Good for keeping the lines down but bad as far as people knowing what they are voting on when they walk in.

                        I did read some newspaper articles on a few and they were just spin jobs themselves and really didn't explain them good either.

                        Yeah, it would seem that most of the things in these amendments are something the legislators should hash out and vote on. We elect them to represent us. The average person doesn't have the time or the expertise to sift through all the nuances of all the proposals. We need an educated electorate that is engaged in the political process but we don't have to be a nation of extreme political geeks, nerds, or policy wonks. That's the job of elected officials.
