A reprise of Editorial Board recommendations for ballot measures in Tuesday’s election:

Initiative 517 — Most of this initiative is an unnecessary and unwarranted elevation of initiative signature gatherers to exalted status. The initiative would make it difficult to exclude signature gatherers from any public facility, including sports stadiums or fairs or parks. The privilege would extend even to the entrance of “any store” regardless of the property owner’s desire. The time allowed for signature collecting would double. A clause requiring public votes on local initiatives seems buried underneath it all. First Amendment rights are for all, signature seekers no more than others. Vote no.
