    I go to a couple voting locations before I stop at mine and I notice only 10-15 voting booths in each, with the lines wrapped around the building, then I get to mine and the same damn thing....:eek: WTMF!!:mad:

    WHY IS THIS STILL GOING ON!!???

    WHY the hell don't they use a gymnasium or a concert hall to get the shit done faster:?

    It would make sense...mores jobs...more people on hand to help people through the gotdamn process!

    WHY are there always just 2-3 Grandmas and Grandpas running the voting locations??!!! what the FUCK is that all about???

    EVERY YEAR..SAME SHIT..

    and WHY do the gotdamn voting machines change every year..wtf?!!:mad:

    :piss2:voting process

    ALSO, I hearrd that in my city some voting items were not included on the ticket if you voted a straight ticket.

    The same 3 reasons nothing ever works right in anything: lawyers, accountants and politicians.

    It is true. There is no reason that a government with a budget at 3.5 trillion does not have something simple and effective set up to allow for easy voting. Granted, this is not a federal thing BUT I see no reason that local governments don't spend a little more and hire more election officials to handle voting. I don't care if the vast majority sit there and do nothing all day, it is an expense that we are more than capable of shouldering.


    You should not have to wait in line more than 15 to 30 minutes, there should be far more booths and the people to operate them and voting should be streamlined.

    You're seeing a good example of how screwed government is.

    They can't do anything right, which is why I think income-tax day should be changed to election day.

    That's exactly the reason Tax day is so far away from Election Day AND Christmas! So we won't be so pissed off!

    uhhhhh, it's NOT the federal government that sets up these voting spots and decides to make it difficult to vote....it is the STATE GOVERNMENT...

    Ours is in a school cafeteria and our voting officials are old and young mixed... I have NEVER waited more than 10 minutes to vote, and my polling place is one of the most saturated in the county

    Hey, YOU are the one that mixed it up and brought in the FEDERAL government with this comment talking about the federal government's budget at 3.5 trillion:

    then you went on to say it was the State's responsibility after implying it was the federal gvt's....it was very confusing so I just cleared things up for ya!

    ;)
