It will be interesting when it comes time to trying the new voting machines. Looking over both sides of the ballot, marking smartly, and being certain before casting the ballot.
For NYC, the charter proposals were given a fair deal of consideration.
* Proposal looks to return term limits from 3 back to 2 terms. I wish it would have a more immediate effect, but it gives voters yet another say which is important. But after the last city election, I will not personally be voting on this proposal. [Though I would have liked voters to turn out incumbents]
Maybe in the end the city council will have it as they preferred.
* The other proposals are a grab bag of reforms. Wish I knew if there were any special costs, but they all have strong commission support.
I expect simply to vote for Yes on 2 and see what effects they may have.http://www.nyc.gov/html/charter/html/home/home.shtml
