Just voted McCain/Palin today! (Vanity)

Posted on 10/18/2008 4:27:01 PM PDT by Goldsborough

My Oregon vote by mail ballot arrived today. I turned it around in about 10 minutes and drove it to a blue box for pick up today. I was so excited I posted my first ever thread. So, please forgive the vanity outburst, but I feel like an early skirmisher or something.

Congrats on being part of history. NOW, get out there to a campaign site and make calls or walk districts. You are now in it to win it.

I’m making phone calls to the undecideds for the McCain Campaign. They whisper I’m voting for McCain then slam the phone down...not even answering the survey questions.

Us two(wife and I), up here on Bainbridge Island(Braindead Island also) Washington. Actually I’ve been seeing a few McPalin sighs around, not many. My neighbor said he would be concerned to put a sign up or sticker on the car as he thought you could be asking for trouble(damage) from the oh so, openminded ones that live around here!!!

Tennessee Early voting started Oct 15. I made a point to bring my 6 yr old daughter to the polls and explain to her what a important right we have, as citizens to vote.

So chalk up another vote for McCain

I voted absentee (disability) and sent it in Friday a week ago. I voted Palin/Other guy/Gilmore/Goode [R-VA 5th dist.].

Then I got a call from Gilmore and his schpeel, but it was recorded, so I could not reply that he was preaching to the choir....heheehehe!

“I’m making phone calls to the undecideds for the McCain Campaign. They whisper I’m voting for McCain then slam the phone down...not even answering the survey questions”.

...are you serious? How often do you hear this “whispering” from people? Are some folks ashamed to say McCain? Are they telling pollsters “Obama” but going for McCain? Please excuse all the questions but if you could answer them I’d appreciate it. Thanks!

Wow, really? Read this article, it's along the same line. It's an interview with a Priest that basically says the same thing.

Here's a little excerpt:

In recent weeks I have spent a good amount of time crisscrossing the country.

Something very unusual is taking place.

From Seattle to San Diego, from Burlington, Vermont to New York City, from New Orleans to Texas and Midwest towns like Cleveland, I am hearing hushed admissions of a terrible sin: “Father, I’m not going to vote for Obama.”

In Oregon, everyone but the procrastinators vote by mail. There are no physical balloting places, only approved drop off sites.

“His whole family are Dems and are voting for McCain.”

That is so absolutely telling!

I’ve said it for weeks:

We. Are. Going. To. Win.

Quote me now and thank me for keeping the faith, later. :)

Oregon has done away with traditional polling places. All ballots are mailed in. There is a cut-off beyond which no ballots are accepted but once that point is arrived at all the ballots are counted fairly quickly.

I filled mine out this afternoon and will drop it in the mail Monday. When it gets to election headquarters my signature (on the outside of the envelope) will be checked against the file to make sure it was indeed signed by me. Then it is stored until they’re ready to count the votes when the envelope is opened, exposing a second, “security” envelope inside of which is my ballot.

The ballot this year is rather long, 8 1/2 by 17 I believe, and printed on both sides. It will be unfolded and run through an optical reader to actually count the votes. If there’s a problem of any sort, the ballot is kicked out and evaluated by hand. While there’s always a few ballots that make the whole process a bit longer, we generally have a good idea of the results before the next morning.

At least that’s how it’s supposed to work. Prayer helps.

never vote by mail never"

I have no choice. I can't get into the polling place in my wheelchair. Besides, I know my registrar and she knows me and will make sure my vote counts.

There was another thread talking about electronic voting machines and hacking and all and someone suggested making election day a national holiday and make April 15 instead of in cold (sometimes rainy) November. I would drive to the county office on an April day and vote in person...not in November on a possibly rainy day.

I feel the same way, I just have to go to the precinct locale to vote.

Mail gets lost without even trying so you can imagine how many will fall behind the machines addressed to the Voting super's office.

Hell, I still worry sometimes when I have to point out my name from across the table and the book is upside down for me at the precinct!!

I just went out to get my sign, someone stole it again... My husband is filing a police report.. Won't do any good.. Oh well. I am not like an Obama supporter. I will not destroy or steel your property... Shows the type of people that support Democrats, the kind that want Obama to pick your pocket for them...

This election is in Gods hands, lets pray God still believes in us..
