The fine print
The ballots have arrived and it's time to sit down and vote. We have mail-in voting here in Washington, and it provides much more efficient and reliable results. By the time the ballot comes, I've pretty much decided on the major issues and candidates, but for the down-ballot items I am happy to have the Progressive Voters Guide that helps to make sure that I'm electing people who share my values. I find that I'm unable to feel optimistic about the outcome of these midterms - after the shock of Hillary losing, and with all of the increasingly crazy things the Republicans and their liar-in-chief have been saying, I no longer have confidence in the rule of reason.
