Touch screen. Waited only about 2-4 mins in line. 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:

    all of the candidates were on the same side of the page, and you poke this marker-thing through the hole to fill in the circles.


Same thing again this year. Shippe said this method is called "Inkavote", but the link he provided 4 years ago is dead now.

Yep. InkAVote again. Here, have a new link to a video demo (lavote.net).

We fill in the little circles and stay inside the lines. But since almost everyone was unopposed and Satan would out poll Obama in Kansas, you just kind of do it for kicks.

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.

I've never had "I Voted" stickers at my voting place. Makes me sad.

We have a special senate election in MA today and my district is trying out the touchscreens. We had paper ballots in November.
