Same thing happened to my girlfriend today. She absenteed last week, but the NC rolls didn't have all the absentee ballots counted, so they just sent out the rolls anyway. Her mother apparently pitched a huge fit when she saw her daughter's name on the rolls waiting to be voted for.
Again - Some election reform would be nice, I think. Though NC has done something right, by having one of the easiest ballots to use ever. Why the hell would we want electronic voting? Everybody should go to the "Connect the Line" ballot. It's the closest thing to idiot-proof.
One of my friends (who lives in Florida - make of that what you will) had to fly to Colorado to vote. Evidently her absentee ballot didn't go through. I'm not entirely sure how that happened, but I was pretty surprised to see that.
I voted early, and MrsAWArulz voted in the General election and she said my name wasn't right there below hers on the sign in like it normally is. So it looks like Indiana has it right, orr at least my county, anyway.
Now, is it ok for me yell THEATRE! in a crowded fire?
Personally, I'd like proof that the racist version predated the non-racist version. I've heard sayings before that originally had no racist leanings given new "color" by bigots. As for the two sisters - get a hold of yourselves.
