The signs designating a polling place here was done in 4 different languages. English, Spanish and who knows what the other 2 were.

I wonder if they got special ballots? And if you can't even speak the language what the hell are you doing voting. Kinda pissed me off.

I wouldn't let it piss you off, rather you better get used to it.

But if they can't read english how do they read the ballots?

And yes I know I have to get used to it. I live in San Diego and I keep telling my kids they need to learn Spanish. It will help them with their carreers.

Absentee Ballot here in NM was in English and Spanish. Didn't notice any signs to the polls but heard directions in Spanish on the radio.

p.s. If you want your kids to learn Spanish why do you have a problem with the language being used?
