    I voted!

    My chauffeur was available today so we went and voted. Straight Republican just like I have since 1976 when I had long hair and an earring- but could still tell Carter was an idiot....

    Mrs. Winger & I went a couple days ago.
    It looked like everybody in town was there, and it took us about 30 minutes to get in & out.

    By Texas law, no campaign stuff in any form or fashion is allowed within 100 feet of a polling station.
    So everybody had to go back and leave their MAGA hats in the car when they saw the sign on the door.

    Straight Republican ticket as always! Voted no on two spending measures. Can't believe how they want to spend money when the economy is in the toilet and the debt is out in the ozone layer!!!

    Voted Tuesday and trusted the boss to get mine & her ballots to the County Clerk (works in the same building) office and got confirmation that they were logged in. Straight Republican since 1971, no on a couple of tax increases and some State constitutional amendments that were numbered in the high 70's, enough all ready.

    Clarification
    Enough all ready refers to the number of amendments in the Colorado Constitution.

    Ten minutes in and out. Would have been quicker but we had to talk to the nice ladies working there to ask about “Mom and them”.

    I. voted absentee and dropped them to the post yesterday. I voted straight republican too. I liked one of the libertarians but didn't want to chance splitting the vote and losing my gun rights. It would have been a vote against Mitch McConnell, And while I don't agree with all he does, things will get worse faster without him.

    Interesting. In Florida, voters can wear their hats, shirts, etc in the polling place. There can not be any solicitation of voters within 150 feet.
    Worker's in the polling place can't, of course, wear or display campaign materials.

    My wife and I sent our absentee ballots back to Michigan a little over a week ago and got a e-mail from the township clerk that they had received them. I mailed both ballots in their return envelopes in a USPS flat rate envelope. Sorry . . but I don't trust then going through the mail in an envelope marked "absentee ballot". Why? Because we never received our absentee ballots for the Primary! The clerk mailed them to us at our correct address here and they sere stamped "undeliverable" and returned to the clerk! Huh???? We ended up doing the Primary on the computer with a PDF the same way as the military has to.

    There was some good news that I heard the other day. A friend was back for a few days and I asked him to stop at the Republican Headquarters in the "burg" just south of us and pick me up a 3 X 5 Trump 2020 flag I could put up. (I no longer drive). He stopped and was tod that they were "out of everything - flags, stickers, signs - but that they were expecting another shipment the next day. He couldn't get back there the next day but did stop the day after - the flag he got for me was the last one left from the large order they had received the previous day. They told him that as soon as they get things in - they are gone. I take that as a GOOD sign!

    My wife and I Still have not voted. Like BedBugBilly above; we have a Southern House (Moapa Nevada) as our primary residence, and a 2nd home in the North (Kalispell Montana). During Jan/March 2020 Nevada "Scrubbed their Roles". We checked in April/May and we were listed on the Clark County Nevada Website as "Active" voters. During the "Hot Season" we are always in the North or traveling away from the Desert; so in June/July we checked the website and we were still "Active". We printed out the hard copy "Absentee Voter Registration" form and mailed it in. Checked the Voter Registration web site in August; and they had us listed as "Inactive"; so we went on line and completed another Voter Registration Form electronically. Checked early last week on the Voter Registration Web Site and they had us listed as "Inactive" . So, we went on line AGAIN and completed the Electronic Absentee Ballot Registration. I then called the Clark County Nevada Voters Office.

    Took probably two hours and went through 6 people; including two Supervisors before we got a resolution on the absentee ballot registration. The last Supervisor promised all was well; but I was unwilling until I got the Supervisors Desk Telephone # and stated that if I did not see us as "Active" on the website next day; or if I do not see my Ballot delivered by USPS by 22 October I would be calling her again. Next day we were listed as "Active" on the electronic posting for Voting. Will have to wait until Thursday to see if we actually get the Ballots for Absentee Voting in the mail.


    I did call the Nevada Secretary of States Office and was less than thrilled. Got the standard line "In Nevada the Election Process is run by the Counties; you'll have to work with Clark County to resolve the issue". Seems that one "MIGHT" get an individual voter registration problem resolved; BUT - there is no mechanism or willingness to investigate/resolve what seems to be a combination of Technical, Process, Systematic, and employee knowledge training issues. Note; I never said in there anywhere VOTER FRAUD; I believe that too often our vote/tabulation systems are handicapped by Technical, Process, Systematic, and employee knowledge training issues - there is just an acceptance of Status Quo; and if there are major Updates/Changes as Nevada went through Winter of 2019 to Present the problems may never be resolved because of either ambivalence or personnel with limited Analytic Skills building the next generations of Process/System/Tech to support the voting process. Yes I am concerned with Voter Fraud; but the "Not my Job - Contact the State Legislature if you don't like the voting process" answer I received multiple times can be infuriating.

    I voted early this year. Idaho has made it very easy. I just showed up and showed my ID and went to the booth (More than half of the hundred or so were open) All Republicans but one on the ballot were voted for and the one exception was for a Libratarion (sp) running for representative.Gp
