By the way this excuse, and those around it, that we see in droves every single time there's any kind of conversation about anything, is a sign of the sickness endemic in America. You have enshrined in your nation this notion of acceptable failure, the idea that the greatest country in the world, with the greatest democracy ever, the shining city on the hill, can totally handle and accept fark-ups from people in high office. There is no dreadful shame associated with standing before the world and saying 'I'm not evil - I'm just so rockhumping stupid that I didn't realise what I was doing is wrong.' Ignorance of the law is excuse to these people, and the culture does not rally against the idea of recruiting, paying, and hiring these people with their admitted, embarassing failures hanging around their necks. This isn't negotiating trade with China - this is basic bookkeeping bullshiat, and as long as the culture seems to think 'Hee hee, paperwork is haaard,' you will continue to have these people, they will continue to do things that are conveniently exactly what they'd want to do, and they will continue to face no repercussions for it because the alternative is to expect some measure of intellect and ability from those people in whom you put the most sacred trust of safeguarding and guiding the future for tomorrow.

All people who vote Republican do so with full knowledge that they are voting for the cowardly, the pitiful, and the stupid. If you don't want to be associated with cowardly, pitiful, stupid people, then don't vote Republican.

Runs_With_Scissors_: I was out yesterday reminding registered Democrats to vote and found several door hangers from the fine folks at American Crossroads informing people to be sure to vote at the wrong polling station - one that was 20 miles away and in a different county. Several other canvassers found the same thing.

I'm sure it was just a mistake.


How the fark can we now throw these people in jail for life? That is pure treason.

Because People in power are Stupid: I'm going to repeat what happened to me in Arizona.

I registered as a Democrat twice. In both cases when I went to vote -the workers there had no record of my registration and issued me a "provisional" ballot (i.e. my vote only counts in a runoff).

Arizona republicans are the epitome of corrupt.


Did you mail it directly in? Because then, that is f--king BS.

A former coworker of mine registered with someone purporting to be a employee of her university registering students during welcome week. She and all of her friends were informed they were not registered when election time came. And of course Michigan law at the time said to stay on your parent's health insurance you had to have your permanent address at their home... so none of them really wondered why they didn't get a voter card in the mail.

F--king stupid crap. Dirty f--king tricks.

/Independent registered voter who has helped more than one person explicitly voting against my candidate/ballot proposal get to the f--king polls to vote
//and helped countless others figure out where they go to vote
///because I have A F--KING CONSCIENCE

We need to create a professional class of poll workers. It should be a federal job. This sh*t is too important to get left up to the parties.

As many problems as there are in AZ, they get one thing right: the Permanent Early Vote by Mail list.

Mailed my ballot 3 weeks ago, confirmed that it is being counted. No need to get in line ever.

Any Sonoran farkers not on this list needs to go to servicearizona.com and sign up.

Keep those door hangers if you took them, or make a record of where you found them. It could be worth calling the DA's office to ask what you should do with any of those materials.

I'm registered as a Dem in AZ. That only happened to me once, but they said it was because I had signed up for voting by mail but decided to vote in person instead, and they couldn't verify that I wasn't voting twice. (My toddler son had used my mail-in ballot as a coloring book.) I did notice that all those nice old lady poll workers all wear matching red shirts on election day.

So Register as a Republican. Not sure how that affects the primary, but at least you'd be able to vote in the actual election.
