A Political Scientist Votes

And reaches this conclusion:
As for the tally: 32 votes today. Two election days this year, with a total of 38 votes; three election days this cycle, with 40 things to vote for. That compares with five election days and 115 votes in 2010, so this year is quite a bit slower — doesn’t look like we’ll get to 100. Next up will be any runoff elections generated from today’s ballot…no idea if we’ll see one or not.
And as always, it’s a great patriotic feeling to get out there and vote, but really we do vote on too many things.
Which brings some questions. What shouldn’t we be voting on? What should we vote on? And how do we distinguish the two?
