When I received my absentee ballot I didn’t know I was in for a very frustrating experience. It contains five pages of proposed amendments with dense, extensive, difficult-to-understand legalese. I’m sure not even 10 percent of voters will be able to make a selection in an intelligent way after fully reading all of these proposals.
A constitution should be a basic document to describe and protect the rights and duties of the citizens, leaving the details to be discussed and decided upon by the legislators and the governor.
I foresee long lines, moving very slowly on Nov. 6 when voters are confronted with this mammoth ballot. The whole thing strikes me as a mockery of the democratic system.
