    Good job! Vote YES 106: Preserve Our Trails

    Mtn bikers: Vote to save 700,000 acres of State Trust Lands.

    Proposition 106 is a homegrown initiative created in cooperation with Arizona businesses including developers, Arizona's education groups, the conservation community, IMBA and other recreational clubs, and local and state leaders. Proposition 106 represents the last opportunity to preserve areas that have been designated for conservation for many years. www.106yes.com or www.conservingarizonasfuture.org

    The Arizona Homebuilders Association is pouring millions of dollars into false advertising to confuse voters and defeat 106.

    Don't let their $$money$$ fool family and friends. Help us spread the word and protect 700,000 acres of trails and wildlife for every generation to come!

    I am getting it from both sides. I work for a somewhat large valley home developer that is actively against 106 and for 107. Unfortunately, I am for 106 and against 107. I just hope my boss never asks me.

    My understanding is our Secretary of State (Jan Brewer) is the reason Prop 105 & 106 are placed next to each other with the bad one coming first. Prop 105 is designed to muddy the water and prevent 106 from getting passed. Please consider another candidate as our Secretary of State.

    Actually I preferred it that way myself. The two anti-smoking initiatives are spread out and it's harder to compare them directly.

    What a screwed up system. I'm hoping someone really IS giving away "I Tried To Vote Today" stickers at the polls.

    A little off topic but does any body know if you can still vote without your voter registration card? I'm registered but since I moved I have not recieved my new card yet, and I'm in a different county now so I know that does make a difference. Do I just show up at the polls with my driver license or what?

    I was just at my polling location and they were checking. I actually received a little condescending remark implying a lack of knowledge about 'understanding the system'. My retort was to quote 'the system', smile broadly at my local precinct worker and remind him that snap judgements based on appearance can sometimes be embarrassing.

    It's almost worth it to arrange to be the guy behind you, CJ. Show up with a conservative haircut, close shave, dressed in a nice suit. Carefully place expensive leather briefcase on the desk. Then go totally stoner-dumbass on the poll worker! "Wait...dude, wait. Can I use my debit card as ID? You need to see a picture? Oh! Oh! Here's one of me and my buds at Cabo last summer...that was totally sick...why do you have my debit card, dude?"

    THANKS!! For reminding everyone. Save the trails: YES 106!! NO 105, 207

    Agreed on the post about "I tried to vote" sticker -- people that have moved recently or often (like college people in apartments) may get excluded from voting........ not exactly "democracy"

    I know it's too late but 106 may not be all for the good.

    One of the contributors for the campaign is a Texas developer who donated $50,000. Found it kind of odd someone would donate money to a campaign that would limit their access to this land. Hopefully I'm just reading too much into it.

    btw, I did vote YES

    I can't believe this didn't pass, much to the same surprise that I had when I learned that Prop 107 didn't pass. I guess people don't preserve anything anymore...land....marriage....

    marriage 'between one man and one woman' is already AZ law. This law would have outlawed 'domestic partnerships' which are already codified in Tucson and Pima County.

    So, I guess you can breathe a ' sigh of relief', all the marriages in AZ won't be headed for imminent collapse, rivers of fire won't consume Phoenix in a great 'no-values' conflagration

    So you're for domestic partnerships, ok....
    FWIW, Prop 107 didn't pass anyways so who cares?
