Voted

I voted! I am now officially excusing myself from being informed for the rest of the week (or as long as I can manage, anyway).

I found that the toughest question for me was actually about whether the mayor of Broomfield should break tie votes for the 10-member city council. As it's set up currently, ordinances can only pass by a 6-4 vote. So the question is basically, which do you value more: the local government being able to make decisions with relative ease and speed, or the local government needing to develop strong agreement before it can make changes? I ended up going with the status quo, but it was hard.
