Some things are getting quite heated this election year. We hear of how employers are pressuring their workers how to vote on vouchers; how pro-voucher fliers were stuck in church programs at Sunday's mass; how the PTA had a talking to from the LT Gov about what they can and can't say in schools about vouchers; how teachers at the UEA cannot count an anti-voucher lecture toward their license renewal requirements....it's going to keep going before the vote.
But it's not just vouchers, other items on November's ballot are getting heated. Bring up the district split issue in parts of Salt Lake County and you'll get an earful from both sides. Even the Salt Lake Mayoral debate is catching the eye of people who I didn't think paid attention -- my fifth-grade neighbor was over the other day, saw a TV ad, and asked us who we thought was the better candidate.
I guess we'll have to see how these issues affect turnout at the polls.
