Fun at the Polls


I read about the presidential election. I weighed the issues. I watched the debates. I listened to my friends and family tell me their reasoning for choosing their favorite. I am not going to say why or how I came to this decision, but I honestly could not make a vote for either of the top two candidates today. I had planned on it, and I was going to keep my selection to myself and leave it at that. However this time, I do not want to vote for the US president.

There was one race today I was interested in, so I walked on over to the local school where I received a ballot and went into a booth. I was hoping for a curtain to pull behind me as I went in the space, but there was none. First on the ballot was the presidential race, followed by the senatorial race (which is the reason I voted today). I filled in the oval for my selection and that was that. But it felt so wrong to not be voting for our next president. I was stalling in the booth, figuring I had to be the only person alive actually debating who to vote for while in the midst of the voting process.

Then, I recalled the conversation I had with Max as we were driving to school. He told me that they got to vote for the president today. I asked him who he was going to pick and he said, “I don’t know.” Then I asked if he knew who was running, “Okahama and I forget the other one.” He told me he would vote for whoever I voted for and I told him that was not the way you make your choice. I told him to vote for whoever he wanted to be president and if it was not one of those two, he could write in who he wanted to be president. He told me he would write my name in 🙂

So, I was thinking, I DO want to vote. I WILL write someone in.
It’s not a throw-away if it was gonna be left blank anyhow.

    OMG…this is awesome. I wish I could see the look on the Pollsters face when they try and figure that one out. (And the look on doho’s face when he sees he was nominated.)

    I wonder if all the write-ins are recorded in the history books and preserved for all time?

    That is the best thing I’ve seen all day. Genius. Hopefully this will be enough to coax him out of hiding. It seriously is kind of freaking me out. He’s probably eating some hashbrowns and laughing at my freak-out.

    My husband wrote me in for county clerk because he accidentally connected the write-in arrow. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I’ve basically been a clerk for my entire career, and I’ve heard county jobs pay well.

    That’s hilarious!

    If the votes are recorded then I’m on file for a vote too, my friend voted for he and I at the last presidential election.

    That’s the level of gravity with which you consider the leadership of a major world power? I think there’s nothing else I need to read here.

    No, I just realized that I would not wake up happier today if either candidate won. Unfortunately there is not a “None of the above” oval. If there were, I would have colored it in proudly.

    Sxoidmal–relax dude–this is not a political blog.

    Kris: hillarious choice–now please tell me that Franken has actually lost–I can’t seem to find out down here in Texas.

    Hope all is well-sorry to have been absent lately–crazy busy at work as usual. When the economy is bad–people go into a litigation frenzy–thus–my work load increases.

    as of yet I think it’s still too close…so we wait! (have I mentioned I am the least patient person alive?)

  9. ATNorth says:

    Yep. Your choice: turdburger or crap sandwich.

    Best Regards

    That is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a really long time. Now THAT’S a candidate I can get behind.
