Here's some info to help make up your own mind with more details than the short blurbs on the ballot.

This will only hurt a little. What comes next, more so.

Proposition 9 passed by a wide margin (57%):

Voter turnout was pathetic, as usual for polls that involve only constitutional amendments. (Some cities, including Houston, also had municipal elections yesterday).

I didn't even know there was a vote until Monday, then on Tuesday I forgot about it until after I was at work. :oops:

I've noticed that Texas keeps its elections secret.

I too would have forgotten to vote on election day, but it came to mind when I was at work one weekend so I stopped by one of the early voting locations which is on my way home. Didn't particularly care about the municipal elections, but I make it a point to vote against all spending/bond issues on principle (and to be contrary).

I was surprised how many people voted to increase taxes during a long running recession until I remembered how many people don't pay property taxes, or get huge breaks in their property taxes, and don't mind spending OPM.

I'm not a homeowner, so that's another reason I vote against spending measures--I'm opposed to spending OPM. If I had some skin in the game, I might consider voting for one occasionally.
