Voted!


NO STICKER. But I did win via laziness. I forgot to change my address so got to jump the whole line. Also, first year I ever voted straight party. No libertarians or greens running for local offices. Woo democracy!

Google News: Elections has vote percentage widgets linked to a state list. Nifty. I'm set for the day. :D

My ballot has quite a few libertarians and greens, so it should be a great mix between them!

I generally my votes with Dems in national seats and greens and libertarians locally. I think greens/libertarians are more likely to get stuff done locally.

We actually have one libertarian and one green as incumbents on the local ballot. That excites me.

yay!

Savagely viked? Should I get some neosporin for that?

I didn't get a sticker because I voted early! No free Starbucks or Ben and Jerry's for me! Boooooooo.

You should beat up a coworker for one.
kiwikat From: kiwikat Date: November 4th, 2008 03:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
I should. It just so happens that several of my co-workers are smaller and weaker than me, too! I could take at least 4 of 'em!

Did you say that because I'm a Scandinavian American too?!
abmann From: abmann Date: November 4th, 2008 03:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
Obviously.

Also, vikings pillage. A few friends and I co-opted the term instead of "steal." :D
kiwikat From: kiwikat Date: November 4th, 2008 03:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
As a Scandinavian American I find your use of this term to be hurtful and racist.
abmann From: abmann Date: November 4th, 2008 03:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yup.

Bawwww.

Where's my hat with horns? Me and Sven are coming to your house to wreak some havoc.

Our Starbucks here is not requiring a sticker to get the coffee..

No free Starbucks or Ben and Jerry's for me! Boooooooo.

Screw that - I'm getting mine anyways!

Actually, there's some legal issue with Starbucks offering freebies in return for people voting - tiptoes too closely to the line of paying people to vote apparently. So all you need to do for your free coffee is show up and ask for your free election day coffee, lol.

I think I'm going to wind up voting for three different parties in this election, which is actually pretty par for the course for me.
abmann From: abmann Date: November 4th, 2008 03:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Your district is cooler than mine currently. When I was living in Verona, I voted Green and Libertarian like it was going out of style.

This is my first general election in Wisconsin, so it's the first time I'm voting three parties here. In Missouri, I wound up voting for three parties as pretty much par for the course, and I'm glad to see there are some third party candidates up here too.

Verona's pretty boring this year. Most of the seats up for reelection were uncontested.

Re: I agree

I would vote for any candidate pledging the banner "Dear America, I will get you laid. Vote for me."

I've been listening to BBC all day. It's a much more interesting picture of america. I think next time I move, it'll be to a moon base.

WAHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaa I didn't get a sticker. they weren't handing them out.

=[ I want an I voted sticker. I love stickers! Oh well I dont' vote for the sticker. I vote for the candidate. Althought I think I'd like it if the candidates gave me stickers >_>... all I'm saying stickers and buttons can buy my vote!

Have I mentioned I have an Obama button?

I don't have a sticker, but I do have a "Baldwin-Fey: All the Way!" button that NBC sent me. lol. I decided to wear that one today.
