My absentee ballot from Massachusetts finally arrived yesterday! It is all filled in and ready to go. Two days previously my dad called me to say I'd received an absentee ballot from the state of Iowa, where I haven't voted since 1996. I used the site J recommended to check and discovered that I am still registered there, as is Damon, even though we've been voting in Massachusetts since 2000. Why haven't they taken us off the rolls? Do we have to tell them to? Isn't this an opportunity for fraud?
I can't wait until the election is over. This morning I received no fewer than 5 emails from my aunt full of brilliant stuff about how Obama is an America-hating terrorist and side-splitting jokes like, "Why are there so many more supporters at Obama's rallies than McCain's? Because McCain's supporters are at WORK!!! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAAHHA!!!!"
