[Update @ 1228 on 4 November—Mano Singham and I are in total agreement here.]

A week from Tuesday, on 7 November, Ohioans lock down the vote on two key ballot questions: Issue 1 and Issue 2. Like many Ohioans, I’ve already cast my ballot, voting no in the first case and yes in the second. Because I have a 9 a.m. student, I’ve not been able to listen to and take part in the conversations on WCPN’s Sound of Ideas weekday program, but I have been listening after-the-fact. On Monday, 23 October, host Mike McIntyre herded the cats—Matt Borges, Issue 2 “Vote Yes” representative; Dale Butland, Issue 2 “Vote No” representative; Seth A. Richardson, lead political reporter for and author of Issue 2 FAQ: What you need to know before you vote; Sarah Jane Tribble, Senior Correspondent with Kaiser Health News, former Health Reporter at Ideastream; and Karen Kasler, Ohio Public Radio Statehouse News Bureau Chief—on Ohio Issue 2, Drug Price Standards Initiative.

McIntyre had hoped to get to a discussion of Ohio Issue 1, Crime Victim Rights Initiative, but was forced to put that off due to heavy interest in the Issue 2 discussion. That may happen this week, but as of now, there is nothing posted on the Sound of Ideas page at WCPN.
