Vote Early, Vote Often

If you are an American citizen, or say you are an American citizen, you CANNOT be asked to show proof and you can vote in any Federal election at any polling place in the US or its territories. I doubt you could pull it off at a US Embassy.

The requirement that you vote at the poll closest to your residence has evolved for the covenience or the Registrar of Voters but it isn't law.

All you have to do is go to a poss and say you want to file a "challenge ballot." You don't have to explain why but I told them I couldn't get home in time to vote. Most poll workers haven't attended or paid attention in the briefing they're supposed to attend and don't know what a challenge ballot is. Tell them you called the Registrar's office and they told you to ask for it, it's in their little instruction booklet.

A challenge ballot is just like any other ballot, it goes in, gets counted, and counts the same (1 person - 3 votes) as any othe ballot. ONLY in the event of a run-off or suspicion of voter fraud (which, of course, this is) does it have any significance. In that event these, along with the absentee ballots are examined first for veracity.

The name refers to one part of the Party (Rep) getting to "challenge" the votes of the other part of the Party (Dem).

There isn't much chance of us winning an election but there is a wonderful opportunity to f--- things up before they catch on and change the rules.

Oh yeah, DON'T use your own name and change it each time. I know you can think of somebody you don't like enough to get them charged with a felony Federal crime.

Have you found errors nontrivial or marginal, factual, analytical and illogical, arithmetical, temporal, or even typographical? Please let me know; drop me email. Thanks!
