    I was absent from the ballot box, yes. That's why I voted absentee. The system allows anyone who wants to sign up as a permanent absentee voter to do so. I'm following the rules that are set up. Whether you like the rules or not is irrelevant. Try again.

    I'm not saying they shouldn't be, they just aren't. Work to change things in your own state.

    Lucky you. Off-year elections aren't bad, but the last presidential election, we waited almost 2 hours to vote.

    I've never experienced long lines to vote, but in the interest of full disclosure I've never lived in the middle of a big city, either.

    It also probably helps that I get up early and am usually #2 or #3 to sign in.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Depends on how many times I vote in any particular election.

    The act of voting is really easy, especially in my area (I think).

    Choosing which candidate to vote for, however, can be difficult, especially if the choices are downright aweful.

    It doesn't help that in some cases (Especially local elections) the candidate(s) you might actually like are so obscure they're write-ins...

    I've voted in every federal election since I was eligible and it's always been the same. I go down to the local elementary school gym, show my ID at the reception desk (no line-up), get a paper ballot to take into a booth and mark and then drop it through a slot into a cardboard box. People count those ballots later and the election is decided. Why does it need to be more complicated than that?

    My experience has been the same, except a poll volunteer with a cartridge of some sort walks me to one of the electronic polls, sticks the cartridge in to unlock it, and goes over the polling procedures. Why are nearly all of the poll volunteers like twice my age? Nevermind...
    Same system for the last 2 presidential elections, not to mention the congressional and local ones.

    Cartridge? Electronic? Why? Why don't you mark a piece of paper and drop it into a box?
