NO on Proposal 2


The so-called "Promote the Vote" initiative petition would amend sections 4 and 7 of the state constitution ... in a very bad way.


Among the troubling proposals:


- Allow 9 days of early in-person voting;

- Require state-funded absentee-ballot drop boxes;

- Provide folks the right to identify with a simple signed statement (like the one in the photo).


All these provisions are a recipe for widespread election fraud and more work for our already hard-working county clerks. There would also be increased costs to both the state and local units of government.


Certainly do your own research on this proposal, but we heartily recommend a NO vote.

I don't like absentee ballots either. If you're going to be out of town, ok, go get an absentee ballot from your polling place. But they shouldn't be automatically sending them out.

* It would be filled out — True? or False? — by someone who has (a) already provided ID when he or she Registered to vote and (b) filled out — and signed — another sworn statement (voter registration form) when that same person registered? * The sig on the “Simple form“ would be compared to a sig — for signatory -- on…
