Walker: Marine1: Voted for Johnson. Don't like McCaskill but couldn't stand the idea of filling in the bubble for Akin.

Gary Johnson? Thanks for guaranteeing Missouri stays red. Great job throwing away your vote.


I don't see how voting for a man who isn't a whore for votes is "throwing away" a vote.

Obama's doing things I don't like. NDAA ring a bell?

They can earn my vote.

tdyak: Proletariat In Charge: I voted....YES on 64!!!

The commercials against 64 are ridiculous. What really ticks me off about the thing the most is, all the most vocal opponents of it (in my neighborhood at least) are ex flower children / hippies from the 60's and 70's who still regularly smoke pot and only vote against it because they don't want to pay taxes on their "meds".


Honestly, the radio adds that piss me off are by the two former governors who spout statistics like "60% of youth in court ordered rehab are there due to marijuana use". If the stuff was illegal, and we didnt have a puritanical view of recreational drug use (alcohol and MJ type stuff) then the kids WOULDNT BE IN REHAB!!!

Until you have tens of millions of people voting for Johnson, all you're doing is helping Romney get elected.

TPM: Voting in NJ a "catastrophe" according to watchdogs

Voters were being asked for I.D. even though the state has no law requiring it, voting locations opened late and some locations didn't have ballots, she said. "In a word, there's just one word to describe the experience in New Jersey, and that is catastrophe," Arnwine said.

While the state is allowing voters to return their absentee ballots electronically, servers in at least three counties had shut down. Eric Marshall, legal mobilization manager for the lawyers' committee, said they are encouraging voters in Essex, Hudson and Bergen counties to simply go to their polling places if they are able to.

Well, it's Election Day, but one question has remained unanswered these many months of campaigning: "Who do the PONIES support?"

Let's find out! :D

Twilight Sparkle?

I see. He DOES have good organizational skills. :-)

Applejack?

Had a similar thought. The winning candidate can just buy ad-space featuring that Kate Upton catdancing video with "Thanks" scrolling across the bottom. Losing candidate shows video of Rosie O'Donnell eating a rack of ribs with "You deserve this" scrolling

Coffee Snob: foxtail: Obama will take an early lead, until the republicans get off of work.

That's hilarious. Was even funnier the first 50 times I saw it. Now, go look up the amount of federal aid given to red states vs. blue. Let me know if you need help with the big words.


Since he referenced jobs and federal aid doesn't reflect the number of people who have jobs and includes unrelated funds such as agriculture, the highway trust fund, food inspection, education, housing and urban development and transportation, let's look at the states with the highest unemployment rates:

NEVADA 11.8 - Leaning Blue 50% O - 47% R
RHODE ISLAND 10.5 - Blue
CALIFORNIA 10.2 - Blue
NEW JERSEY 9.8 - Blue
NORTH CAROLINA 9.6 - Tossup 49% R - 47% O

Let me know if you need help with the big numbers.

Seriously considered voting Jill Stein our Gary Johnson, but in the end went Obama. He deserves it, despite all my misgivings.

You hear that Republicans?! This ex-republican undecided voter just voted straight ticket Democrat for the first time ever, and I didn't like it.

But I had to. The right needs to hear that their blatant obstructionist partisanship won't stand.

This aggression won't stand, man!

Someone or something really does need to stop the bullying. Republicans AREN'T EVEN THE F*CKING PARTY IN POWER, yet they've managed to fark up passage of some very good progressive ideas within the past 4 years.

deffuse: So, if party representatives can collect ballots, what happens if they get caught dumping them.... is it illegal? (Honestly don't know)


That depends on if their party controls the elections board in their state after the election.

Gonz: evoke: I remember the polls favoring Kerry just before the election back in '04 as well. I voted for Bush that year - first time I was eligible to vote. In '08 I voted for McCain. So I am 1 out of 2 so far. Today I am voting for Romney and there is no doubt in my mind that he's going to win it.

You popped your Presidential cherry with Dubya? I'm so sorry. My first Presidential vote was Clinton in 96.

I'm also a Presidential hipster, as I voted for Harry Browne in 2000 (Bought into the "no difference between Bush and Gore" argument. Oops). I was into the Libertarian party before it became all mainstream.


My first vote was in 2000, for nader. in florida.

we had no idea. I'm so sorry.

You do understand that the NDAA was attached to the defense spending bill and was passed with a VETO PROOF MAJORITY, right? In other words, had he not signed the bill, your buddies in the military would have not gotten paid, and after a delay where Obama would have been savaged for not caring about the troops the thing would have become law anyway. You get that right?

And do you also get that Obama is not the king? He cannot just waive his hand and make pot legal.

Good grief.

I wouldn't even care if they weren't whining and stomping their feet like a bratty 2-year-old - having the house, senate, and presidency controlled by the same party is a gateway to all kinds of shiatty legislation - you need some kind of sane opposition to keep the idealism and straight party line in check.

Federal aid or federal spending? Does military spending get included in the category, or another?

I made the mistake of engaging with a libertarian on Facebook this morning. Although we don't disagree on many issues, the sheer condescension was gut-wrenching.

That aside, having electronic polling stations staffed by the elderly is just madness.

scubamage: Mr. Carpenter: scubamage: I may be calling the ACLU today.
Yesterday my fiance frantically called me explaining that I wasn't registered to vote. I told her she was nuts - I had had my address and registration verified by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) when I moved back to the area. I logged back into their website, tried modifying my voter registration to my current address, and voila, it says I'm registered to vote at my current address. I go to the Pennsylvania voter registration site, and discover what my fiance was talking about - I am not shown as registered anywhere in the state of Pennsylvania.

So I call the county election office and spend the next 2 hours on the phone and start getting more of the story. Apparently there were "a number of issues" when they linked the PennDOT system to the election office's system. They are pretty sure that I fell through the cracks, despite doing everything I was supposed to. I have a paper trail of all of this being done.

Apparently PennDOT's system for changing registrations when you change your address of record works by first canceling all registrations (vehicle, drivers' license, and voter) and then sending out notifications of the new registration to the appropriate agencies, without confirmation checks (anyone who writes software can see the issue with this approach). Except mine didn't get sent out. I asked if I could get an approval number, or written notification attesting to this but they refused, and kept saying "we'll call you back this afternoon." I never got a call back.

So this morning I went to the last place where I had voted as stated on the PA voter website for situations like this, and again they confirmed that I am not registered to vote anywhere in the US. So they had me fill out yet another change of address form and a provisional ballot. You know, the same provisional ballots which have a 40-50% chance of being counted. Needless to say, I am pissed.

TL;DR: got screwed o ...


Percent chance this changeover went down sometime after 2010?
