Eliminating straight ticket voting was a bad idea

"Late last year, the legislature passed and the governor signed a bill outlawing straight ticket voting. The governor and various Republican lawmakers made noises about how this will encourage voters to make more informed choices.
That was all horse exhaust."
...
"So in an especially underhanded move, Republicans this time attached a phony small appropriation to the bill, which has the legal effect of making it impossible to repeal by referendum."
