Letters | Non-binding ballot questions
Solution may be found every other election
Julius “Jules” Levine writes: Your editorial “Ballots: Bound up in non-binding questions” lamented that these questions contributed to long delays in the presidential election. Delay is surely undesirable. However, in years such as 2006 and 2010, when the presidency is not at stake, turnout is regrettably low, and long delays tend not to happen. If there is merit in the editorial’s implicit call to curb public policy questions, abolition or restriction should be limited to the quadrennial presidential elections.
