    Mail-in ballots in my precinct. If there were booths, I don't know about them, because I'm in a different state.

    I voted in the morning. no line, but for some reason I had to re register. They also had me in the computer as living somewhere I never have. ballots were easy to read and fill out.
    peace,

    No issues for me, but for some reaon my wife was not registered in our precinct, and had to do all the paperwork.

    So I herded the kids for about 15 minutes.

    Other than that, nothing.

    I got in and out in 20 minutes, as the usual. . .

    No punch cards this time, just the giant card (say, isn't that environmentally unfriendly?) where you have to connect the lines.

    I miss the old days of the punch card. Some days you just feel like punchin' something, ya know?

    Why can't they just use credit cars type thing that you swipe? I mean all they have to do is print out a name for each vote after that...

    punch card?
    giant card?
    connect the lines?

    I cant picture what this describes..could you explain more?


    Here in NY state (dont know if its state-wide, but I think it is)
    the people at the "check in desk" have a printed-out "book" of everyone who is registered in the district, and assigned that particular polling place..I overheard the workers say they had 600 people for that particular place... each persons name in the book has a copy of their signature next to it.
    the signature in the book came from the signed registration, when the person registered.

    then the "check in desk" person holds a piece of paper over the signature in the book, so you cant see it, and asks you to sign on the line next to it..
    after you sign, they check that the two signatures match.

    Thats all I had to do to "sign in"..didnt even need to show any ID.

    Our polling place wasnt busy at all (about 4pm)
    there were about 5 people ahead of us..
    we were in and out in 10 minutes..

    This describes exactly what it was like for me, in Missouri. I did have to show an ID, though.
