Dude, Pay Attention: Vote Centers! Voting Suggestions.

You live in Denver. You are registered to vote. You haven't voted yet.

There are two words that are more important than anything else to you tomorrow:


Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 7, 2006 is election day. The polls open at 7 a.m. The polls close at 7 p.m.

You can go to any of the 55 vote centers in the city and vote. It doesn't matter where you live. The precinct voting place you used to go to is probably gone. Click on the link. There is a map.

There weather will be fine. You have a right, by law, to skip work and go vote. There are more than 1,400 voting machines. The lines won't actually be all that bad. Bring you driver's license or state ID.

Did you skip the newspapers and blogs? Do you now feel uninformed? Do you trust me? Here's your cheat sheet:

CANDIDATES: Vote for Democrats.
JUDGES: Vote to retain them all.
E (Tax Breaks For Totally Disabled Vets): Yes.
F (Take Recall Election Deadlines Out Of Constitution): Yes.
G (Obsolete Constitutional Provisions): Yes.
H (Tax Deductions For Illegal Immigrant Compensation): No.
I (Domestic Partnerships): Yes.
J (65% On Instruction Broadly Defined): No.
K (Bring Frivilous Lawsuit v. Feds): No.
Amendment 38 (More Ballot Issues): No.
Amendment 39 (65% On Instruction Narrowly Defined): No
Amendment 40 (Judicial Term Limits): No.
Amendment 41 (Government Ethics): No.
Amendment 42 (Minimum Wage in Constitution): Yes.
Amendment 43 (Marriage in Constitution): No.
Amendment 44 (Legalize Pot): Yes.
1A (Sales Tax For Pre-School): Yes.
1B (CFO For Denver): Yes.

The ballot issues that matter most are Yes on I, No on 39, No on 40, and No on 43. Trust me on those, at least.

Note: Not every trial judge outside of Denver deserves to be retained.
