    A lot of people here in MA are being told that if they are a registered democrat and they vote for brown their vote will not count.

    That is a bad rumor and a lie.

    It stems from how our voting system is set up in this state.

    In our state primary elections if you are a registered democrat you can not vote for a republican. If you are a registered republican you can not vote for a democrat. Hence our very large independant voting block (more independants than dems and reps combined).

    However in the main election you can vote for either canidate regardless of what party you are registered as.

    I heard a lady on the radio this morning say "I wish I could vote for Scott Brown but I'm a registered democrat and that means my vote wont count" The guy set her straight but then he said that they have got a ton of calls of the very same nature.'

    Just wanted to put the truth out there for any MA democrats on the forum that didn't know this already....now vote for change and scott :D

    Most Americans want to see another Coakley thug roughing up a reporter! Can you make that happen? We already know Brown is gonna lose in 'Kennedy-land'.

    Even if Brown wins they will just 'Franken' him, and somehow after a few recounts he will lose.
