Stunning, I know. Have you turned your ballot in yet? Probably not:
In Denver County, 12,476 ballots had been returned by Friday. Another 883 yesterday, and 5,986 today. 311,123 remain outstanding one week before they are due to be in the hands of the Denver Election Commission.
Nothing to vote for you say? Maybe, but there’s something you need to vote against:
This November, voters in Denver will vote on a vague and dangerous ballot initiative, Initiative 300, that would require the local police department to immediately impound the vehicle of anyone driving without a drivers license or registration in their possession.
This is yet another initiative pushed by Jeffco crackpot Daniel Hayes, darling of Peter “Orly Taitz” Boyles and unabashed racist. The law is a blatant violation of the Fourth Amendment. If it passes, it will cost the city millions of dollars to enforce, and then millions of dollars to defend in court when someone’s Constitutional rights are violated by the Denver Police under this initiated ordinance.
These harebrained ideas from fringe lunatics prove what’s wrong with the initiative system. We need to raise the bar. If people want to change the law they should run for office. But in the short term, those of you in Denver need to return your ballots with a NO vote.
