PDA

View Full Version : U.S. Issues The "I Voted" thread

Election day is 12 minutes away on the East Coast. This is the thread to post in once you've voted. For those of you who do vote - congratulations. You now have earned the right to complain about everything for the next four years.

Personally, I Early-Voted last Friday night. Early voting was supposed to end on Wednesday (I think), but because the storm closed it down for two days, the Gov extended it until Friday night. I drove my Dad (age: 79) out to a local community college, and we both went in to stand in the pretty impressively long line.

Dad has trouble standing, so he sat in a chair they had set out; someone apparently came and ushered right up front. I didn't see this, of course, because I was at the tail end of the line; it ended up taking me about an hour fifteen to move through. The election volunteers couldn't have been more efficient. Voting itself took about five minutes.

So go out and vote. Those of you in swing states may end up standing there for hours and hours, but it's important, and worth it. You could very well end up being the deciding vote. Then come in here and post about it.

Yeah, I should just move. It's funny cause I read an article on USA Today a week or two ago stating all the reasons why the Electoral College should be maintained and it boiled down to bullshit reasons like "maintaining integrity" and all that malarkey. I honestly have a great idea, don't abolish the electoral college, make every state worth the same amount of points. Don't give me the reason that because I don't live in a state that has a higher population that our portion of the vote isn't as high. If you made all states equal, dangerous concept I know, but then the candidates would actually have to visit the country that's voting them into office. Yes, it would make the bus tours more time consuming and difficult but we're talking about our President who'll be set up for life and run our country for us. I also read online that someone can win the election by winning 18 out of the 50 states. Talk about a broke ass system all together.

And honestly I would move if I was a staunch Democrat, but I'm not. I'm a person who votes for the man I believe will make this country great. I don't know why I say that seeing as its the parties and cabinet that run the country most of the time, not the actual President.

Okay I have a great opinion, in my own opinion, and you're opinion of my opinion is your opinion. I'm just telling you my reasons for not wanting to vote, no harm no foul.

Oh and you can win the election by winning 11 states not 18. Fun stuff.

It is possible to win the election by winning eleven states and disregarding the rest of the country. If one ticket were to take California (55 votes), Texas (38), New York (29), Florida (29), Illinois (20), Pennsylvania (20), Ohio (18), Michigan (16), Georgia (16), North Carolina (15), and New Jersey (14) that ticket would have 270 votes, which would be enough to win.

That is a terrible idea. You want to give Alaska as much stock in an election as a state with 20 times the population. You are basically saying that millionsbof pplll in the more populous states votes dont matter. Popular vote is the way it should be..its plain and simple and makes sense

I tend to agree, but man, wouldn't a recount be a bitch?

Gravedigger
11-06-2012, 02:51 AM
That was the articles logical point that a recount would take far too long. I still believe you could go state to state county to county without the electoral college and rely on the popular vote but we all know it won't happen in our lifetimes. I'm going to throw away my vote but I still want to contribute regardless.

I think compulsory voting is a terrible idea.

I'd much rather have people who vote because they care about the outcome than people who vote because they are forced to vote. You'll get better collective decisions if you don't force people to vote who know nothing about candidates or issues.

The idea of free elections should include having the freedom not to vote.

The line was one of the longest I can remember and it was due to a 124 year old lady running the check in desk. There were 6 machines but only 2 were being used at any given time. It wasn't all her fault though. Several people were at the wrong place. One of the other ladies would ask if they received the mailer that tells them were to go and there was a consistent "I don't have time to read those" answer.

Machine? WTF is a machine? Bob Dole REALLY wanted to violate the no cell phone rule and take a photo of our polling place.

3 clones of your 124 year old check in clerk, and 6 voting "stations", which are folding tables (with a white tablecloth) pushed up against a wall, with cardboard barriers between each tabletop area. Of course, that really doesn't offer any privacy at all, since the line to check in snakes around and there are people less than 2 feet behind you.

Still only took 20 minutes, and is always a chance to catch up on gossip with the neighbors.

We actually had one touchscreen machine in Itasca, IL that I used. I arrived right at 6 am and there were about 30 people in line. It was going fine then one of the old ladies tried to have people form different lines but her instructions were clear as mud and there ended up being a small mess waiting to give my name and get all that going. All in all though, it could be worse, I could be in Florida or Ohio in the rollercoaster lines waiting to vote.

Wow on some of these stories. We had about six middle aged women running our polling station. There were about 30-40 places to sit down and fill out your ballot. I was about 6th or 7th in line when I went in, and I was probably out of there in five minutes. I walked up, gave them my voter registration card, they typed in my number, I signed the iPad thingy, and they gave me a ballot. I guess it might take a few seconds longer if they have to look you up by name instead of voter id number. I sat down, filled in the proper arrows, put my ballot in the machine, and took a sticker. Machine told me I was #235.

If I voted it would be for Gary Johnson. Like it matters. But I fear that if I register to vote, that will ensure jury duty in Boston. I got lucky last time since it was cancelled but that doesn't clear me for 3 years, so no voting for me.

Do you think you should be exempt from all of your civil duties of being an American?

You are not better than the next man dude, quit passing your duties off on someone else...

Who did I vote for? R&R! Why?
I will vote for the most pro-life candidate, because God hates the shedding of innocent blood (Proverbs 6:16,17).
I will vote for the most pro-Israel candidate, because God blesses those who bless Israel and curses those who don't (Genesis 12:3).
I will vote for the most pro-debt reduction candidate, because the borrower is servant to the lender (Proverbs 22:7).
I will vote for the most pro-work candidate because God says if a man does not work, let him not eat (2 Thessalonians 3:10).
I will vote for the most pro-marriage candidate, because God is for marriage as defined in Genesis 2:24.
I will vote for the candidate who most closely believes government's purpose is to reward the good and punish the evil (Romans 13).
I will vote based as close as I can on God's Word (2 Timothy 3:16), knowing that whoever gets elected, wisdom and power are God's, He sets up kings and deposes them; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; He knows what lies in darkness and light dwells with Him. (Daniel. 2:21)

Because the libertarian party best represents my political beliefs. I hate the monetary policies of the D's and I hate the social polices of the R's. They both have a decent points. The libertarian party isn't perfect but I agree with close to 80% of the libertarian ideals compared to maybe 20-25% of the R's and D's. I don't understand why you believe Romney will be that different.

Wow on some of these stories. We had about six middle aged women running our polling station. There were about 30-40 places to sit down and fill out your ballot. I was about 6th or 7th in line when I went in, and I was probably out of there in five minutes. I walked up, gave them my voter registration card, they typed in my number, I signed the iPad thingy, and they gave me a ballot. I guess it might take a few seconds longer if they have to look you up by name instead of voter id number. I sat down, filled in the proper arrows, put my ballot in the machine, and took a sticker. Machine told me I was #235.

iPad thingy? You mean one of the geezers with horrible eyesight doesn't take you ID card, and look you up in a bound paper booklet, and manually stamp "voted" on your line? Then hand off your ID card to the next geezer, who hand writes your name and number on a log sheet that you have to sign?

iPad thingy. Pssshaw.

They had a sign up stating no campaigning or vote soliciting past this point close to where you enter. I kid you not a well dressed man walked up to me and said he had some voting information for me. This was past the sign several yards, I took it thinking he was one of the people working there. He handed me a small pamphlet. It said vote Obama and straight line democrat on the first page LMAO I read it and turned around to see him smiling at me, I crumpled it up in my hand and told him I would let the people inside know there is an idiot outside campaigning at the entrance. He turned around and headed towards the sign LMAO shitbags helping a shitbag~
