Vote, Voting, Voted

We cast our ballots painlessly by email. We no longer have to snail-mail our paper ballots back in. Yea! Some things improve, some don't.
Yessir! We Sure Did!

How I envy the British and the Canadians (and probably others as well). They only allow political ads for thirty days before a called election. My how refreshing that would be.

I'll trust that someone will win, perhaps with both the popular as well as the Electoral College vote. So, enough of that drivel. I'm tired of polls and pundits. Period.

Hi Paul,

Well, to be perfectly honest, it's not entirely by email. You still have to print and mark a paper ballot, convert it, a sheet called the voter privacy sheet and then the voter declaration sheet into PDF (or, I suppose, some other acceptable format, if there is one) and then attach that PDF to your email and send it. Still, a major step up into the 20th century for such things.

Cheers,
Dave

Amen to it being over at last. Now, to see how long it takes for all the smoke to clear.

Don't wait for the results... lol

Hi Julian,

Oh. It's supposed to clear? I thought it was more or less permanent.

Remember when Presidents sometimes won by a landslide?

Cheers,
Dave

Hi Julian,

Heh, heh, I guess you were right about that. Except I had to wait till the morning after to find out... I couldn't stay awake past 9:00 PM.

Cheers,
Dave
