Okay, i've read most of the "Official Voter Information Guide," (i just kinda skimmed over most of the in depth analysis of the actual text of the proposed changes) and i've got just one really important question left right now.

Aren't there supposed to be some _people_ to vote on as well, not just things? Is that not the case since it's a "special" election, or were the people covered in some other guide that i either misplaced or never recieved? I'm going to feel really dumb if i get down to the polling place and have to not vote on a lot of stuff cause i don't know anything about it =/

The only other thing i'm not fairly sure of is which to vote for on 79 vs 78. I'm leaning towards 79 just out of a general distruct of large corporations, but that's not really the soundest of deciding factors to go with. Unfortunatly the two bills seem fairly similar except one group has the corporations screaming "this one will work! the other one will never work! it sucks!" and the other has a bunch of non corporations screaming "this one will work! the other one will never work! it sucks!"

Anyways, off i go to vote and work and stuff.
