HOUSTON — Public choice theory holds that it’s usually rational for voters to be ignorant, as the cost of spending time to educate oneself typically outweighs any benefit from casting a nearly meaningless vote correctly.
That shouldn’t be a problem for Texas voters next Tuesday, though, as editorial boards around the state are endorsing all nine constitutional amendments with near-unanimity. Don’t think – just vote yes!
The papers in Dallas, Houston and San Antonio all favor approval of all nine ballot measures. The Austin Chronicle is the only dissenter that Ballotpedia found, and it just opposes propositions 3 and 4.
