So I roll out to do my errands, go to the bank and vote. Polling place enroute to the bank. I'm stopped at the traffic light, polling place to my left, I look over--- NO LINE! (lotta cars, everywhere, though...??). So I go to the bank, am headed back home, gonna shoot on in and vote real quick-like. Park the car in a pharmacy parking lot adjacent to the polling place. Start to roll on in... oops, found the line. They moved the entryway to the rear of the building for this election. The line, while I couldn't actually see the end of it, appears to snake through an entire residential subdivision. We ought to be able to negotiate amongst ourselves, cancelling each other's votes out, and then we can all just sit here on our keesters and talk about more important things like this week's game against the Vikes. Couple of problems with my plan, I admit... I'd lie like a dog and tell you I didn't vote when I actually did, but that's just me... :thumbleft: Seriously, I'm trying to figure out what would be the best time to go- looks like there isn't going to be one... BTW, I didn't want to "bump" the Political thread we had going... by now 99 44/100ths of us know how crazy we all are on that one. :wickedfart:

This is easy to answer........."YES" and "YES!"LOLOLOL!!!!

I voted about a week and a half ago. Since we moved here 2 years ago, i knew i wasn't registered here. So i stopped at the town hall and registered. There was a couple there that were voting already, so i asked if i could too, and they said "YES!" So i voted, and brought my wife in to vote a few days later. I don't have to stand in line today!

You don't have to stand in line to vote in Wisconsin. I filled out about three dozen absentee ballots and mailed them in.

15 minutes they said. Oh, initially very optimistic, pleasantly surprised, etc. 45 minutes later, they hand me an index card with my name pre-printed on it. That was line number one. "Go to the end of that line, sir." This would be line number two. 35 minutes in that line, in order that they can write a number on the index card they gave me in line number one. "OK, sir, now you need to go to that line." Line number three, where you sign your name in order to vote, which since Christ was a corporal was always line number one (and only)... 20 minutes in that line, in the meantime, voting machines sitting idle 90% of the time, because these complete friggin' morons have emplaced 3 solid bottlenecks in the system.... AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Idiots!
Unless, of course, it was a subtle voter-suppression tactic drummed up by me fellow Republicans, in which case, I say, Brilliant!

I also got to bitch out my incumbent state senator for leading the charge for the now in effect smoking ban in my state. I explained that I'm originally from Wisconsin, and that he's damn lucky we traded Brett Favre, because any idiot knows you cannot root for a Brett Favre lead team without smoking at least a pack of cigarettes in the bar. He laughed. I laughed. I voted for him.

That is one thing about small town Wisconsin.. none of that happy horse pucky.. walk in, one stop to take care of the details and vote..
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.
