Response to Eric J in MN (Original post)

4. The League of Women Voters did an outstanding job of persuading local governments and media outlets

that the bill would cost them big money.

They published a chart with three columns: 1) The text of the ballot question, 2) The text of the actual amendment, and 3) The implications of the amendment for people and local governments.

An editorial in the Strib might have done nothing to persuade rural and small town voters, but editorials in small town papers (especially those run by local people) and statements by local governments to the effect that "your taxes would have to go up" most likely had a great effect.
