Juni? Casinos?

For or against, it's a pretty important vote. Watch Moral and Pure Ohio vote it down again.

Juniper 11-03-2009 12:51 PM

Casinos, a health levy, libraries, bonds to benefit veterans, and the farm animals board. I'm not going to talk about the other four, but I really hope the library levy passes. I heart libraries.

Shawnee123 11-03-2009 12:59 PM

I'm not in your country, but I hope your library levy passes too.

We have a county library levy, and the county park district...both worthy of a yea vote for me.

Our school system can bite me: all they ever do is ask for money and threaten to cut extracurriculars. Every year with the alarmist crap. The big wigs who basically own the town and control business can foot that scam, for all I care.

Ohio seceded? Whoo hoo! :lol:

LMAO.

Um, er, ahem...I meant county.

Too funny.

Is it wrong that I just cast my vote for Constable for Pius Nark?

That is really his name. Actually he was out in front of my polling station when I voted, introduced himself, and pleasantly asked for my support.

I did not have the courage to tell him I was voting for him because I like saying "Constable Nark."

The rest of the voting had to do with judgeshiips, and judge retentions. I had a list of judges to work from, but had to flip coins on the voting to retain.

I missed my chance to vote. I registered back in April, but the registrar of voters didn't send me a sample ballot or let me know where the polling place was.

ZenGum 11-03-2009 11:56 PM

What? Substandard election processes in Florida??? I have never heard the like of it before! This is outrageous!!

Radar 11-03-2009 11:58 PM

Seriously man. This is the first election of any kind I've missed in about 12 years. I'm going to call the ROV tomorrow.

Town of around 16 or 17 thousand, so I guess there must be 7 or 8 thousand voters. Got there at 12:45pm, no waiting, I was #96 for the day. :(

You see numbers of that kind in by-elections. The poll workers don't quite go to sleep, but... well, they have plenty of time for chatting amongst themselves or with the voter who just put his ballot into the optical reader's slot.

My mother-in-law is a teacher in a poor county where they had a vote on a school bond awhile back. It failed, crushing all her coworkers' hopes for adequate school supplies and salary raises and lower student-to-teacher ratios, etc. At the next district meeting, the rather pissed-off superintendant asked every teacher who had not voted in the election to raise their hands. He then nodded and informed them that there were enough of them in the room that, had they all voted for the bond, it would have passed. The turnout for small-time local elections is staggeringly low (full disclosure: I did not vote yesterday either.)

Don't you love democracy?

Everyone I voted for yesterday, and every election and issue I was watching from afar and cared about, either failed or lost. Oh well. I wonder if my sperm count will go down?
