I sometimes write, "Voters must vote for what they justifiedly believe promotes the common good, or must otherwise abstain." I explain in the book, however, that when talking about good and bad voting, by "the common good" I mean the same thing as "the right ends of government."

I argue that voters owe the government competent decision-making, and voters count as competent if they justifiedly believe something like: "This policy or candidate I vote for is the best way to promote the common good," or "This policy or candidate I vote for is the best way to promote the rights ends of government." I am defending a theory of voter competence, which doesn't require me also to give a theory of justice.
For Hume, any "assurance" grounded on testimony "is derived from no other principle than our observation of the veracity of human testimony, and of the usual conformity of facts to the reports of witnesses."(29) Leaving aside whether this claim implies that testimonially based beliefs must be inferential, is it true that for every proposition one justifiedly believes on the basis of testimony, one must have a justification from other sources?

Brennan maintains, "Voters should justifiedly believe that the policies or candidates they support would promote the common good." (7) This appears to mean that (1) voters gather enough knowledge to cast informed votes, and (2) they believe that the way they cast their votes furthers the common good, even though Brennan does not tell readers how to identify the common good.
