Since last post: 876 days Last activity: 876 days # 41 Posted on 6.11.12 1123.53 Reposted on: 6.11.19 1124.33 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: 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.

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

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

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.
