Connecticut ballot initiative results.

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/files/elections/2008/general/by_state/statewide/CT.html?SITE=CTHARELN&SECTION=POLITICS has the results.

Question 1, on calling a constitutional convention to change the state constitution went down to defeat 59-41, and Question 2, on allowing 17 year olds to vote in primaries in years when they'll be 18 by the time the general election is held, passed 65-35.

One amusing thing was hearing a radio jock on WTIC 1080 Hartford mention on Election Day that you should vote yes on Question 1 if you want to allow crazy people to change the constitution. (It was widely seen as a way to reverse Connecticut's court decision allowing gay marriage.)

All in all, I'm pleased by both results.
