Election endorsements

I suppose I don't really need to go through step-by-step here. I'm voting a straight Democratic ticket, despite wanting to vote for Nathanael Alexander Fortune because "Auditor Fortune" sounds awesome, and wanting to vote for Jill Stein so I could say the Governor gave me a medical exam. Jadelennox did better research than me, so I'm basing this decision somewhat on her post.

I might skip the Attorney General election entirely, though. Martha Coakley did not impress me in the special Senatorial election, to say the least, and I feel I need to register my protest somehow.

As for the ballot questions, #2 is the only one that sensible people are even considering (deplete our income stream in this economy? Um, no). It's the complicated low-income housing one, which I won't attempt to summarize. Everyone I've talked to (for instance, Jadelennox again) sums the issue up as, "It's not a perfect law as it stands, but the ballot question doesn't provide an alternative. The law needs some reform, but not having one at all would result in a lot less affordable housing." I like affordable housing. So, no.
