Voting: Was It Easy or Hard.

I voted early yesterday and was floored at how quick the process was:

1) Presented my electric bill (could have used my drivers licence but didn't just for fun).

2) Was presented with a credit-card type key and a stylus.

3) Walked over to the machine (manufactured by Diebold) and inserted the card.

4) Voted: Touched my candidate/proposition choices with the stylus (or finger) and finalized my ballot.

5) Card popped out with a 'click,' returned it to the nice senior behind the desk and was out.

6) Walked back into room to return the stylus, feeling like a chode.

Whole thing took no more than 7-12 minutes.

I decided to post this after hearing how different voting is like in florida and then remembering that it was the birthplace of the 'pregnant chad' meme.

I also figured it would be interesting to see how similar or different voting experiences were like in different states. Have at it.

The first five times were easy. The sixth time was more of a challenge. We will see how it is tomorrow.











Come on, you knew that was coming in this thread.

You have the advantage of starting in a swing state. I have to drive to them. Speaking of that, I need to check the weather in Florida tomorrow.

Well, I currently live in NC, but am registered in Ohio. Luckily, Virginia is only a short drive north as well. Donald Duck is going to come in a close third, I think given my fervor of voter fraud.

Not only did I vote, but I went to the local Home Depot and gave the illegals $5 for every Obama vote they made.

Obama is but a pale reflection of the glory of C'thulhu (pun intended). C'thulhu is the only one with a workable plan to end all human suffering.

And thank you for that five-spot. Next time let the ink dry before you give them out, BTW. The wet ink leaves stains.

Riding up and down the east coast from FL to NC, VA and PA all with this weather has been a nightmare. I also think I'm running out of good names, when I got to PA I tried to use Abraham Lincoln, turns out it was already in play. Bastards.

I live less than a minute from a polling location so I always vote on the morning of. Plus, I get to troll the pricks campaigning outside the front door.
