More than 160 ballot measures going before voters this year
’Legalize it’: On Election Day, voters in different states get a say on recreational marijuana; hiking the minimum wage; and more.
On Nov. 8, Americans won’t just get their say on Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump: voters will weigh in on a slew of ballot measures concerning everything from the minimum wage to marijuana.
More than 160 statewide ballot measures are certified to go before voters this year in 35 states, according to Ballotpedia. While that’s down from some past years, the issues remain the kinds that stir voters up. Here’s a look at some hot-button measures facing Americans around the country on Election Day.
Minimum wage: There are measures to boost the minimum wage on the ballot in Arizona, Colorado, Maine and Washington. And in a referendum that may prove to be the bane of South Dakota teenagers, voters in that state will decide whether the minimum wage should drop by $1 an hour for workers under the age of 18.

The final presidential debate led off with questions about the future of the Supreme Court, currently deadlocked along liberal and conservative lines following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. The candidates, in a sometimes somber tone that didn’t last through the debate, played to their bases in responses that focused on abortion, gun rights and the direction they would try to take the court when filling openings.
Mrs. Clinton described her potential appointees to the court as tribunes for the common people. “I feel strongly the Supreme Court needs to stand on the side of the American people, not on the side of the powerful corporations and the wealthy,” she said. She listed liberal decisions she wanted to protect, protecting abortion rights and same-sex marriage, and one that she wanted overruled, Citizens United, which lifted limits on corporate and union political spending. She said nothing about the legal philosophy her nominees should hold. Continue reading

The Quiet Grace of Ronald Wilson Reagan
Recalling the Gipper’s basic decency—during the least inspiring election in generations.
In 1987, when he was informed that Democratic presidential aspirant Gary Hart was accused of extramarital activities, President Ronald Reagan reportedly quipped, “Boys will be boys. But boys will not be president.” In all matters, Reagan was wise.
For years, we have looked with skepticism at political operatives who claim to know what Ronald Reagan would have done in any given situation. The truth is, nobody can know. All we can do is study him. But what we do know is that Reagan was full of grace and charm and kindness, and it’s good to recall that as this sad campaign season winds down.
America’s 40th president was an essentially decent man. When Nancy Reynolds, a Sacramento press aide and close friend, began working for Reagan when he was governor of California, he had a heck of a time getting used to the idea of going through the doorway in front of a woman. When Ms. Reynolds, holding the door for the governor, questioned why, Reagan replied, “My mother told me ladies go through the door first.” Continue reading
Colorado’s sitting U.S. senator guaranteed Monday that he can help to push through immigration-reform legislation that’s been stalled in Congress for more then three years, while his Republican challenger said at the same time that the Senate should step back to study the implications of policies ranging from worker-visa limits to overtime pay rules to understand their impacts fully.
That contrast in action plans between Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet and GOP nominee Darryl Glenn, an El Paso County commissioner one of several ways in which the two Senate candidates were at odds with each at a Denver Metro Chamber Leadership Foundation. The candidates also disagreed over the federal minimum wage — Glenn opposes raising it, while Bennet supports raising it to an unspecified amount — and whether the current federal health reform plan (ObamaCare) should be added onto or thrown out the window, among other subjects.
Discussing a series of business policy questions, the two men displayed the difference in their views on the role of government that is at the heart of their contrasting candidacies. In areas from transportation funding to workforce development to health care, Bennet spoke of what part the federal government can play in helping to produce solutions, while Glenn said the federal government typically should defer to local governments or to question whether it has a role at all in achieving a particular solution.
