I voted earlier today. First time in my life. About 50 seats on the ballot, and around 10 of them (mostly local judicial seats) have republicans running unopposed. The libertarian party has several people on the ticket, and I voted for them when I could, instead of republicans, 'cuz at least there's a chance they're socially progressive, right?

Thank you for voting.

I get a bunch of Republicans running unopposed every time too. I make myself feel better by writing in my cat, the specter of communism, yog-sothoth, a club sandwich...

Yeah, I gotta prep to do that next go 'round. I've got two cats, so that's at least two seats.

I was in a bit of a hurry because there was a ~20 minute line of people behind me, but now I know the interface. And on that note, I'd rather there be a literal paper trail instead of solely electronic tallying.

Just to clarify, is your cat separate from the specter of communism, a jewish-sounding-villain-like name that I am about to google, and a club sandwich?

p.s. I'm bumping the shit outta this post until Tuesday, probably

My cat is indeed separate from the specter of communism (like all cats, he's a monarchist), yog-sothoth (different speces) and club sandwiches (though he always steals the bacon if I leave one unattended).

I found some fried okra from last night's dinner on the floor this morning. Two suspects/cats
