4. I think we are probably going to be ok on the statewide elections

But the districts are going to be very important. Can we hang on to what we've got in the state senate and house?

I encourage you all to talk to a rep and go out canvassing, or do something active to participate. Its projected to be a really low turnout, and anything we can do to raise the numbers is going to make a big difference.

The initiatives will be important as well. If we can get MJ passed with democratic support, that will help solidify our hold on the younger generation. Giving people changes they actually want will go a long way in convincing them its worth taking the time to vote.

And this open primary thing is a mess. Id love to see us do a semi-open primary (ie chose any party on the ballot and then vote for your choice in their primary) or (in my dreams) an instant run off. But the complete open primary is a mess that will lead to manipulation of the system.
