Can I Vote Absentee From A Neighboring County? Please?

Just so you know... those of you who live outside of Palm Beach County, our last elections on Aug 26, were an absolute frickin' disaster. (Today's Post article is HERE.)

I'm not even sure where I'd begin.

Quickly, during the voting audit, they found they were missing 3000 votes. It has been a crazy madhouse as they've tried to find said missing votes.

(The biggest issue was a race for Judge that is within something like 20 votes. Scary close... this has now ended up in our court system. Sound familiar?)

Because of the requirement of a paper trail, we no longer have the electronic voting machines that were brought in after the 2000 Elections fiasco. This election, we went back to paper... again. Its one of those optical scanner types where you fill in the arrow.

This was the trial.

It has been a disaster.

And our big elections are coming up and all of us in Palm Beach County are very very nervous as to how this will play out. It needs to be landslide one way or another. If its close... let's just say I can't go there mentally.

What is up with Florida and their voting issues? Wow... I'd be worried about November, too.

Well, fortunately its not Florida, but just Palm Beach County. Our County is run by a bunch of pinheads... on every level.
