Now, I will be the first to admit I don't know every single issue at stake but I did do my homework before I cast my ballot. I needed clarification in many areas and was even surprised at some of my findings. Yes, I left a few blank since I don't know every judge in town but that is something I need to be more proactive about.
We had an interesting conversation about people we know who openly share their vote but can't explain their reasoning. Or those who just say they are voting this way because their spouse or parent is or even because they have always voted this way.
I think we live in an exciting time where great things are happening and maybe at a future election their will be a pass/fail quiz that says, "Pass: You are ready to vote" or "Fail: Go back home and do your homework."
