Get some goat skulls and dance around a bonfire, its a more effective ritual than the govt cult rite of voting. <p></p><i></i>

Saving democracy one click at a time

My village is so small it doesn't make it onto all the maps, so voting is easygoing and mellow here. <br><br>I walk down to the firehouse with my younger daughter. Two of the three ladies with the signature books greet me by name. I give a handful of copies of some pages of the local freebie paper from 2004 to one of them, as they'd done an interview with her on the front page (there was a nice picture of me further back in the paper that issue, and I'd found that I still had a stash of them). She actually didn't have any of them, so she was pleased. Parents of a girl my daughter used to be friendly with in elementary school are there, so we catch up while I wait for the single machine to be free.<br><br>We still use the old manual machines. My daughter loves to come in the booth with me and grab the red bar to pull the curtains shut. I love snapping the little levers down under the names, it's such a satisfyingly physical action. Click, click, click, fuckyou I'm not voting for _you_, click click. This exercise in democracy is an endorphin-producing experience<br>that I wish the rest of you could have.<br><br>Earlier this evening I'd gotten locked in the library. They have an ongoing used books sale area down in the basement, and I lost track of time. I came up the stairs to find it pitch black, with the front door locked. Luckily it turned out that their meeting room was a polling place, and that door was not locked. A very surreal experience.<br><br> <p></p><i></i>

I couldn't vote either. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :( --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/frown.gif ALT=":("><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> Apparently WI has adopted other states' tactics. I've been registered for 5+ years at the same address: that of my now husband's tavern. I still get my mail that way, even though we no longer live above the place. I left it that way because I choose to vote in favor of his/our business interests, rather than voting for who will be dog catcher in the small town in which we actually live. <br>Well, guess what. That is not allowed any more. Yah, I know, when Ann Coulter does it, it is heresy, but when I do it it's okay...<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :rolleyes --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/eyes.gif ALT=":rolleyes"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> I did vote in this same precinct for 4 years after we moved. My husband (who is 53 years old!) still is registered in his parents' precinct. WTH? <p></p><i></i>

What Coulter is not?

At least you probably filled in your voter registration with the appropriate gender marked. In the facsimile I've seen online, Coulter left that spot blank.<br><br>We seem to be smooshing the Republican candidates quite nicely here in New York. Didn't even have to use the goat skulls!<br><br>I suppose that means we should start taking bets on when the Bush administration will declare martial law... <sigh> <p></p><i></i>
