It's better than biting your nails during the big decision? Look for someone without a really great smile - like a Hillary voter.

Gabby Hayes? No, deceased.
Walter Brennan? No, deceased.
Warner Wolf? Let’s go to the videotape...uh, nope.

Hillary Clinton? Well, maybe!

Not sure what to make of this story. If a person takes out his or her dentures at a polling booth, then forgets them, should that person really be voting?

It sounds like this person may have Alzheimer's or some other disease that robs a person of their mental capacity.

I hope this person has some family to help him or her.

My Dad passed in assisted living facility; some of the people had Alzheimer's; it is a terrible disease. It robs a person of their life memories.

Look real close on the dentures - there’s always the last name embedded near the back, real tiny but it’s there (gramps and granma sometimes gets theirs mixed up, it’s how they know who’s who’s)

Now we know why Maine voters put Susan Collins and at one time Olympia Snow in Congress. They’re too stupid to even know they’ve lost their false teeth!

I’m thinking dementia, too. And considering what happens at assisted living facilities around here on Election Day, I’d say there’s a decent chance that the owner of the dentures may have been brought to the polling place from whatever facility he/she is residing in. Which, if true, might also explain why no one at the facility has been in touch to recover the dentures.

I have a girlfriend who has the most perfect teeth and beautiful golden-red hair.

I send that pix to her on a regular basis, claiming it’s her HS Graduation photo, LOL!

(She has my same sense of humor, obviously!)

No doubt a Dem voter.

That narrows down the search for the owner, at least a little “bit”.

At last, an election you can get your teeth into.

The owner should be able to describe the dentures.
Their size, colors and alignments.
