god bless it america.

well, fuckles.

i'm pretty sure my vote did NOT count today in california's presidential primary election because of THiS. it's all over the news, people were confused or just plain unaware of this double bubble they had to fill out to indicate their party pref. i even went back to my polling place to discuss this (my ballot was irretrievable in a locked box) and they assured me my vote would count as long as i specified a candidate. figures, even THEY'RE clueless. something's clearly wrong with the ballot design, not to mention the lack of cohesiveness and communication amongst poll workers in this area.


lucky for me, i would've been happy with either barack or hillary, but still.....

Yeah, luckily I listened to Warren Olney this afternoon before I voted, and he had the guy from MoveOn.org, who was alerting everyone to it. Of course, I am Miss. Anxiety, and was a total spaz walking in there, and, and, and,

OMG, it's so easy to get all worked up. Luckily, I'll be happy with either Hillary or Obama. But I was sorely tempted by that sexy name, "Kucinich" on the ballot.

awwww, meeeyan....i hope there's a recount, or more appropriately a REAL count.....i, too, am a nervous nelly walking into those polling places. i'm ashamed to admit it, but one year i totally fucked up my ballot in those thingies where you push 'em under and poke threw 'em......needless to say, my vote did NOT count that year either.

i still have nightmares about having to figure out the ol' school 'curtain shut' voting booths!!! dear lourdes....i just know i'll be swept away in some futuristic time machine!!!!

i'm such a simpleton.....i want someone to ask me POiNT BLANK what i want and then i'll tell 'em. but, sadly, life just isn't that easy......yet.
