Ballot envy.

Jonathan Bernstein...
...we in Texas have the magic button that allows us to vote a straight ticket with one touch, and I believe, although I'm not certain, that it's a 100% partisan ballot.* We don't have any ballot measures. We do have judges, but they're partisan, so that's helpful.
Wow. No initiatives. Straight ticket voting. Partisan judicial races. Sounds a little bit like heaven to me.

Texas. A nice place to vote, but otherwise, I'm afraid, I wouldn't want to live there.

My daughter moved to Austin in the spring due to her boyfriend's job. The other day I asked her wistfully if she thought they ever would eventually come back to New Jersey. She snorted and said "Hello! This is TEXAS!! OF COURSE I'm coming back to NJ!!" lol

So I guess a lot of us wouldn't want to live there. Although I do understand it is lovely to visit.
