I went in to vote for the Roseanne Barr, the green party candidate, and the precinct workers told me I was registered Democrat which can't be correct because I changed my party affiliation to Libertarian years ago. I told them that what they have written down is incorrect and that I wanted to vote for Roseanne. They said they can't change what is written down, too bad. So I tore up my ballot and threw it in the trash. Morons!

Great job David ... It's quite unfortunate that FP predicts a historic low turnout.

You could have done a provisional ballot.

I wanted to piss off my friends, so I changed my registration to Republican this election. I got two ballots in the mail! WTF? I threw the Democratic one in the basura (I still voted the D ticket all the way - but it felt dirty doing it with a Republican ballot). I have a feeling the Democractic secretary of state has her office work extra slow changing the "D" to anything else. Either that or it is a logistical nightmare running this type of system and you only see the cracks when you change party affiliation.
