Rock that [expletive deleted] vote! - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
Rock that [expletive deleted] vote!
The distance I have to walk to my new polling place is twice what it was at the last apartment, but since it was only half a block before I'm hardly going to complain, I suppose. The craptacular punchcards are now out in the dustbin of history, but it's worrying that this polling station that serves two precincts only had five of the special optiscan-rated pens on hand, and I predict that you'll be hearing some horror stories related to that little twist on tonight's news... Anyway, I voted my new particular bastard back in for this term because he happens to be Rahm Emanuel, a figure of some clout within my so-called party, and because the R is such a doof that his campaign signs say "vote for Kevin", the rank stupidity of which offends me. In 2008, though, I want to see a primary choice first. (And I do confess that I sat out this spring's primary vote, partly because I had an inkling by then that I'd probably be moving before the general, and mostly because nothing being decided in my old precinct was competitive in the slightest.) Now off to bed, since to get up early enough to be voter #16 I have to not actually go to bed in the first place, and whether I wake up in time to head out to the Sci-Fi meetup is anyone's guess. For now, though, I hope this presentation will inspire you to get out there and perform... your civic duty, of course.

Want to participate in the story? I was contacted by Brendan McCarthy of the Chicago Tribune who is collecting information regarding the lack of pens. His number is 312-222-3540.

Thanks for the info -- I'll have to see if any of my neighbors voted later in the day, when the pens might have walked off or dried up...
