nice hat. needs earflaps for you Michiganeers
I was thinking the same Walter.
Good question, even if it gets marked as "dumb".
Remember the Boy Scout's motto: Be Prepared.
That answered what question exactly, cjhsa?
That some districts are less prepared than others as far as training their workers, and that many voters are simply not prepared to vote.
"Doves? Why am I voting about doves? Which one is the Democrat?"

Because we train our election workers and test our voting equipment prior to Election Day?
Are the election workers trained by the parties and not by the the government/state/county/municipality?
And is the the voting system as well supplied by the parties?
(I suppose, it was a joke, I didn't get, though.)
It's actually quite simple.
The election workers are trained by the County Election office.
Our county is largely Republican.
Our machines are working, and our election workers are prepared.
Get it now?
Thanks, Tico. I knew such only from history (communist countries, Nazi time here etc).
It's done here by civil servants - I can only guess their political view, since most aren't members of any party (and even if, this isn't something affected to their job and known officially).
Pretty typical - screwed up districts with untrained or poorly trained staff, can't fix the problems, then they claim tampering when someone tries to help them. Al Gore and Jesse Jackson then show up for a photo op.
I voted on a PA electronic machine at 7:45 this morning. This machine replaced a cozy old-fashioned machine with levers.
I have no problem asking for help, but last week Mr. Noddy made a big fuss about being expected to learn a new system. Both the Commonweath of PA and Monroe County have tutorial Internet sites.
The state site is full of bad jokes and doesn't show the actual electronic screen.
The county site was created for adults of average intelligence, but when I enlarged the electronic screen, the printed information bled off the page.
Oh, Brave New World!
Voting is obsolete. Just take the corporate shill they give you and shutup!
Yep, it's gone from a "Democratic landslide" to "We don't know how to vote!" in a matter of hours.
Here in Maryland I hear that most polling places are very active. Heavy turnout in various counties. I haven't heard of any computer hangup's, but the Gov. of Maryland encouraged voters to get absentee ballots because he doesn't trust the system (the same system he voted for when he was still a delegate) Last night they reported close to 200,000 ballots had been sent out, but not everyone who requested a ballot had gotten one. They were trying to find a judge to extend the time for passing in the absentee ballot. I plan to hit a few election parties tonight, hope we have something to celebrate.
Theyre extending the absentee votes till 11/14 because of all the stoopsky boobnik crap that went on.
The GOP was calling Dems this PM and telling them that they could vote tomorrow.
Who is stupider
1GOP shills for trying this
2 Or Dumass Dems who believe em.
Government should be left to the mob... Oh wait, it already is.
As of now , with 39% of precincts in, Caey is leading Sanatorium by 56 to 34%. Looks a bit wider than I hasd guessed.
I did an exit poll today for CNN and I LIED OUT MY ASS. I wrote in that I was all GOP when I voted (first time ever) STRAIT D TICKET.
Exit polls in national elections have been shown to influence states that arent fone voting. The 24 hour news cycle needs some substance during the early afyternoon, so they compile these exit polls and report them to Montana etc.
I like to phuck with the staus quo, if just two pwoplw from our precinct lie about their vote and publish that they voted otherwise, its a significant statistical glitch and would not be picked up as a joke until the votes were counted.
I hate exit polls. I think they are a tip-off to the other side (doesnt matter which side).
Im a DEM, but if Hillary were to run in 08, Id cast my vote for McCain. He doesnt set his hair on fire every AM.
Well we oughta start a 2008 thread, times a wasting
