Convention Defeated

The AP is reporting that the constitutional convention has failed by a wide margin.

In the end, it looks like people weren’t interested in changing the constitution after all. The effective “vote no” commercial that has been airing on state TV may in part be responsible, I’m thinking.

Voters also approved an amendment to allow certain 17-year-olds to vote in primaries, an amendment which was a result of the usual constitutional amending process.
