voted

October 19th, 2010 at 12:36 pm

I filled out my voting ballot this morning. I really like early voting it's so much more convenient to sit down in your home with the ballot, the book explaining the amendments and take your time to fill it all out. The only thing I don't like is that in Colorado you have to declare yourself either a Republican or a Democrat to be able to do early voting, if you say you are independent you have to go to the voting place. If you declare one party or the other, then you get tons of robo-calls telling you how horrible the other person is and lots of junk mail asking for donations to the party - yech.

I consider myself a libertarian. Government shouldn't tell people how to live their lives, people should take responsibility for their own choices. Government should be smaller and more efficient and not waste so much money. And then you get to the details ....

I finished reading my book The Sword of Fire and Shadow by Diana L. Paxson and Adrienne Martine-Barnes. Sci/Fi - ok.

    I voted early too. Our state allows early voting for any party or non party in general elections only.

    I just got done voting by mail early also. Washington State used to have the two best vote getters from the primary go on no matter the party affiliation, and you didn't have to declare your party affiliation. That used to be a total hoot - the more wicked among us would vote for the weaker candidates in the opposite party during the primary.

    These days, I avoid commercial TV just to avoid the political ads.

    I don't have local stations so I am missing out on all the political ads.... and I live in California!
