GanjSmokr: firefly212: I think Obama will win here... not because he's more popular, but because the LV model excludes many young voters who could give two craps about Obama, but will likely vote for him at the same time they vote for the State Constitutional Amendment requiring the state to treat marijuana in the same manner as it does alcohol.

Why wouldn't those people vote for someone who is for stopping the war on drugs (Johnson) instead of voting for someone who has no issues with continuing it (Obama/Romney)?


Because throwing away a vote on Johnson is tantamount to helping Romney. The parties aren't all the same, and if you think going 3p helps, then thanks for the Bush years when we could have had Gore... that was a trillion dollars in Iraq well spent.

AFAIC, a vote for someone you don't agree with is a wasted vote and a vote for the lesser of 2 evils is still a vote for evil.

If one of the 2 "choices" can't convince me to vote for them, that's their own damned fault - not the fault of a 3rd party that I actually AGREE with.

Sleeping Monkey: Amendment 64 will get the liberals out to vote in CO.


But Scott Gessler, Susanne Staiert and Nancy Doty will do their best to magic their ballots away.

To check the status of mail in ballots, you can log in at

https://www.sos.state.co.us/voter-classic/secuVoterSearch.do?transact i onType=voterSearch

and ensure that yours was received and will be counted.

(more than half of CO votes by mail in ballot now, so that might be helpful to someone)

Dunno, tragic failing of anonymous voting is the inability to know where your vote actually made a difference.
