Registration day

October 4th, 2004 (11:12 pm)

Had the day off; slept in and then headed downtown to finalize my voter registration, with which I'd had some problems. I registered at the DMV when I got my new license after moving, and they failed to send my voter registration card. I called, and confirmed my registration -- and they still didn't send the card. So I went down and did it all again in person. I met up with hjcallipygian for dinner, and he needed to register locally, so we walked back there. On the way, a couple asked us if we knew the way to the election supervisor's office -- "Why, yes. Just follow us..."

Big line there; it was the last day to register in Florida for the November elections. The office was well-prepared for the onslaught.

I am registered and ansty to vote. Can't we just get this over with so that all political advertising can be taken off of my TV?

Says the woman who lives in a state that isn't being seriously contested. I point at your annoyance with political ads and laugh! LAUGH!

(You can't turn on the TV or radio here without getting a zillion political ads. In a row. Actually, it doesn't bother me, but it's almost funny in a way. Guess it's payback for our cutting the last election so close four years ago...)

I guess I really can't say I feel your pain. We all know who is going to win Texas.

It's not so much the political ads that bother me but the news coverage. Is it too much to ask for unbiased reporting?

At least we can all still be counted in the popular vote.
