Got my free cup of joe and doughnut..........oh yea I voted too, not a big crowed but a nice one.

And some people are real dumb asses, here in clay county we use the optical scanner, which means you fill in an oval with a number two pencil, this does not require any special type of voting machine yet people were standing five deep to use the voting podiums, three of us walked around these dips, two sat in chairs while I used the top of a piano, out in five min, dumb asses still in line.

I'm in Miami and I voted last week but this morning I went down to the exercise room in my hotel and was surprised to see a lineup of about 35-40 people waiting to vote.

I've never heard of using a hotel as a polling place before. It struck me kinda funny.

Then when I went to the lobby for breakfast I sat at a table next to the line of people. Everyone that was in line that mentioned they were voting for Kerry accidentally got coffee spilt on their shoes.

Just kidding.

Maybe they're actually going to show up?
This is my first election in KC and I can't believe that they still use punchcards and I thought the roads and schools were the only bad things :)

I voted last week. I only voted for Pres, governor and senator, plus BSII. I haven't followed any other races in MO or Clay County and I don't do straight ticket so I left them blank.

I have already gotten shit for voting for a republican but oh well.

The biggest cluster f*ck I have ever seen .....they put the mute lady in charge of getting people together to find out what preceint they were from.....I was there at about 7:15 and it was a huge mess untill about 8:00 when the lines were finally untangled and people were in the right line to vote in the right preceint...I left at 8:30, I was however suprised ot see how many people were there when I got there, the last time I voted for president I was there or about 5 min, in and out....

I skipped a lot of the circuit judges because I didn't take the time to read up on them. I also didn't vote for anyone running unopposed.

Hell, this was the first time I have only voted one Dem locally. However, per discussions held by both you and BC, I did a little extra research and didn't mind throwing the Dem votes I typically make to the Libertarian party. At the local level, it makes sense as that is the only place the party movement will actually take hold.

Translation

When I checked in, a woman asked what my current address was. I assume, she being a resident of Prairie Village took notice my wearing of a leather coat in a house of God. She may have assumed by my disheveled appearance that I was some sort of a deviant such as a Democrat or worse yet a Libertarian.

IIRC, in states that have that type of system, the usual vote breaks down 75-25% in favor of retention...FOR EVERY SINGLE JUDGE. It's not just you idiots...it's 1 out of every 4 idiots.
