Election Day

I just got back home after voting. This election is going to be a mess. There are major problems with the electronic voting system being used this year. In Colorado, instead of precinct polling places, they set up voting centers around the state with officials having access to computerized voter lists. Voters are able to vote at any one of the voting centers they wanted to, which meant they could vote near where the worked instead of driving all the way home. Good plan except that the computerized voter lists were unavailable to the officials at most of the voting centers. The Colorado Democratic Party has filed a court appeal asking that voting hours be extended two hours beyond the usual 7:00PM closing. These kinds of problems are not limited to Denver but are happening all over the country. This is going to be a long night.

Oh, and this:

is the political party I voted for today. Instant Karma's gonna to get you.
