It appears that there is a short window for early voting in Illinois that begins on Sept 24. I had planned to vote by mail because of COVID, but I have decided to vote in person because that seems like the most surefire way to bank my vote in a way that cannot be fucked with.
September 24 is just one week from now, so I dutifully went online to find out who all the local candidates are, and discovered that there is a ballot initiative. I hate ballot initiatives because if you don’t do your homework ahead of time it’s nearly impossible to figure out the real impact.
Am I the only one who struggles with ballot initiatives?
If I’m not, and you want a place to talk about ballot initiatives in your state, this is where you can do it.
Since I live in Illinois, I’ll go first. When it comes to Ballot Initiatives, Ballotpedia is our friend.
