I think I spent longer in the booth than in line making sure it didn't goof up my votes. DC, and some places in NoVA, voting machines are recording wrong votes so they shut them down and went to paper ballots. In Fredericksburg, VA, votes are being thrown out: Originally posted by Click Here (wtop.com) Listeners told WTOP that poll workers told them that the voting machines at the community were not working and that votes cast before 8 a.m. would not be counted. Listeners say the center ran out of paper ballots. -- 2006 Time magazine Person of the Year -- -- July 2009 Ordained Reverend --

But since almost everyone was unopposed and Satan would out poll Obama in Kansas, you just kind of do it for kicks. Perception is reality

AIM: # 48 Posted on 9.11.12 0157.57 | Instant Rating: 3.04 The frivolity of the modern American voting ritual is ridiculous. I voted once, when I was first eligible to vote in the Bush/Kerry 2004 election. I voted for Kerry being 18 and still uninitiated into the world of lobbying, the finer points of capitalism, etc. I simply smirked (in my mind) when I stopped to get gas and saw that lady behind me with the "I Voted" sticker. It's almost like giving a child a smiley face sticker on his English report. Sad at worst. Catastrophically embarrassing at best.

That's awesome! The most I've ever won is, like, a dollar. I never buy them for myself, but sometimes I'm given them...so I guess I'm ahead one buck. --K
