ABSTRACT
The article discusses voter motivation (VM) or the reason a citizen chooses to vote for or against a measure, and legislative design or what the measure is calculated to do. Its discussions include cases and commentary confronting the question of inquiry into voter intent, a defense of the traditional position of barring such inquiry, and objections to the latter. It also takes up Professor Cass Sunstein's notion of naked preferences and Professor Ronald Dworkin's idea of ethical independence.
