I Voted!!

I was so scared, because they changed the voting method and what if I was no good at it? First we took our ballot into a little booth, photographed below. That’s my actual filled-out ballot. You could zoom in and see who I voted for. (Cuomo. He’s cuter. Yeah, sue me.) (Okay, that isn’t the real reason I voted for him.) (I think I mostly voted for him because it’s as close as I’m going to get to getting Mario back.) (No really, I think he’ll do a good job.) (But the thing about his dad is a little true.) (As is the thing about him being cute.)

Then you went to the other side of the room and scanned it in. They wouldn’t let me take a picture of the scanner without first getting permission from someone who wasn’t there.

  1. We had that system in MD about 15 years ago. I remember the OPRS scanner (for acronym lovers: optical pattern recognition system).

    We used touch-screen computers today and the last election. MD has to have the most expensive equipment and change it nearly every election at enormous expense.
