  1. Turn out should be very good, I would think. So, I beg you, please be prepared with a cheat sheet. There are 4 Constitutional Amendments as well. Do your homework, have your list of choices in hand, then it’s just a matter of pressing the right buttons.

    This is a Public Service Announcement. Thanks.
