    Let us not forget why today is important to millions of people for years to come.




    Also, you should go vote if you haven't already.

    I voted to buy a carbon V10 frame last night.

    Now that the important decision has been made, it's time to choose which dip**** will annoy me for the next four years.

    Happy Ballot Day! I miss the days of the mechanical voting machines. Flipping the levers and pulling the handle made it feel so primal. "GRRRRR I just pulled the lever and voted!" Now we have paper ballots. Whatever happened to going paperless? And the bake sale at the polling station sucked. No muffins or banana bread. Just some store bought bagels. If I wanted a bagel, I'd stop at the local bagelry. WTF...like Betty Homemaker in the PTA had more important things to do than bake up some muffins?? The nice thing about going to vote when the place opens at 6:00 is that it was too cold and early for any douchey candidates to stand around outside shaking the hands of voters.

    So yeah, I already voted today. In and out in five minutes.

    I voted. Optical scanner + paper ballot. No lines. I approve. (Then again, no one is trying to disenfranchise Long Island voters... we skew Republican in aggregate. I apologize.)

    Happy vote day, bishes. I early-voted last week and I am proud to inform everyone that I cast my ballot for the white guy. Really, it wasn't that difficult since the only other option would have been to vote for the fat chick.

    Vote by mail ballot all filled out and sealed in the envelope. I figure I will put the kid in the stroller and walk over to my polling place in a bit to drop it off.

    Indeed you win. I wish my company allowed that since it'd be a 90 minute round trip for me, not couting vote time.

    Legally they are required to let you take time to vote. You might.not get paid for it, but by legally must.

    You present a very compelling argument. With my 6yo as a running mate you're a shoe-in for the position.

    - baptist church
    - nazerene church

    tomorrow will be a grand day: i'll get my new stumpie & a status 2!

    Yup, legally you get up to 3h unpaid leave to go vote.

    I voted 2 weeks ago. In-person absentee, you just go walk up, ask for a ballot, fill it out, put it in an envelope and hand it in. Keeps you from having to deal with the sh!tshow on Election Day and you also get to find out if there are any issues with your voter registration.

    I'll pay you $10k to whack a guy I know.

    Then you'll sell your bike, have $10,000, AND a sniper rifle.

    I voted early, wife and daughters voted today, son has yet to vote and don't know if he will or be able to.

    Still getting the maggot annoying phone calls, and have verbalized a few m-f-ers to the callers. Last one was from an unknown number, so I just replied, "this number no longer takes calls that are unidentifiable", and hung up. Now to see if they call back, since the first 2 were from the same "survey company".

    Good thing I got my ride in today so I could deal with these jerks. And before you say "you don't have to answer", I'm a sick puppy that enjoys getting verbal with unwanted calls.

    Oh, and if you haven't voted yet, your time is running out, so if you don't, don't bitch about the outcome.......
