Today I voted

No line at the polling spot. I'm not sure if that was a good thing or not.

also -

I wonder about voting sometimes. The referendum questions were totally written at a 12th grade+ level. The first question was something like "to reduce from three to two the number of terms..."

i'm not too sure that people that have poor reading comprehension would be able to understand such a sentence.

People that have poor reading comprehension make up a much more significant proportion of our population than you think.

is it just that it sucks to be them? is the lesson "take education seriously"? We dumb down lots of things in society, why not voting?

I don't think that anyone wins when people can't understand what they're voting for.
