Please Vote!
« on: November 02, 2004, 09:14:00 am »
Just returned from voting - the line literally stretched down the block!  The hour I had to wait went by quite quickly and I felt good being there.
 
 Last night I started thinking of acronymns for the word VOTE.
 
 My favorite one I came up with:
 
 Vote Out Tyrannical Extremists
 
 Any others?
 
 Cheers

I arrived at my polling location in Takoma Park about 10 minutes before the polls opened. There were ~50 people there ahead of me. By the time I exited, there were at least a hundred folks waiting in line.

Lines were also long at my polling place in Dupont Circle this morning...

Despite the line and the new-fangled electronic voting machines, the poll workers kept everyone moving along at a good pace. I actually arrived at work at my regular time.

in my neighborhood (Doompont), the line stretched down a full block and then halfway around the corner.  I couldn't wait but I'll leave work mid-day to do my part to BEAT THE BUSH!

Sounds like we were at the same place (St. Thomas Church)!  
 
 We could very well have been near each other in line, even though we wouldn't have known it (I don't know what you look like).

I voted by absentee ballot last week, so today was a bit of an anti-climax for me personally -- that does not assuage the nervousness of waiting. Damn.

My vote in MD is completely a waste of time seeing as the Dem always takes it....which brings me to yet another chance to bitch about the electoral college bullshit.
 
 IDEA!
 
 If you insist on having this electoral college crap in doodleville, why not do it another way to make it a little less unfair.
 
 Say, for example Knobhead Bush gets 51% and Kerry 49% of the votes in OH...instead of Bush getting all the electoral college votes, he should get 51% of them and Kerry 49% of them, that would seem to make a little more sense out of a stupid system......no? Still not as democratic as the popular vote system, but better than the shit you all have now.

BTW facists....I mean republicans. It's only ONE vote each, and black people get one each too.
