One of the things I have been surprised to enjoy so much is Washington's mail-in voting. They send out a thick pamphlet with every candidate's"vote for me because" schtick about a month in advance, then the official ballots arrive in plenty of time to read up more and eventually get it to the Post Office.

I do see the inherent danger - pushy spouses could influence the household's votes and such - but for a state with so much rural area this seems a fine solution.

It does sound nice!

I appreciated that the ohio secretary of state website provides both the "official argument for" and "official argument against" each issue on the ballot. Handy way to size them up, though one should also look at other references, I suppose.
