Well, yes. Charter schools are on the ballot in Left leaning Massachusetts (Question #2) an initiative to expand charter schools, much to the dismay of the teacher’s unions. The Boston Globe supports the plan, which would give 32,000 students the opportunity for a spot. Students in Massachusetts charter schools gain the equivalent of 36 more days of learning in reading and 65 more days in math. A related measure is on the ballot in Georgia (Amendment #1)

Charter schools are public schools. Donald Trump has favored attaching the state’s education money to each student and allowing the parents to pick the school they want their kids to attend.

In Virginia, Governor Terry McAuliffe has pardoned 60,000 felons just in time to allow them to register to vote. The state’s supreme court said each individual felon’s circumstances must be weighed separately, so McAuliffe used an electronic autopen to sign thousands of letters—as if he had actually reviewed them. He is a longtime buddy of Hillary Clinton, and expects to win the state for her.
