wtf kind of name is 'True the Vote'?

also, are they claiming that their constituency is the sort that would stand in line for hours to vote, only to be successfully bribed by a bottle of water?

Yes.  Yes, they are.  But not just a bottle of water, a bottle of water, and a CHAIR!

How DARE people try to make it livable when the GoP worked so hard to make 7 hour lines?

If Luna was a furry, she'd sex humans and scream "BEASTIALITY!" at the top of her lungs at inopportune times.

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.

Florida is a fucking mess. My sister isn't being allowed to leave work early to vote so she has enough time between both jobs unless she shows her boss a picture of her ballot. I told her that's super illegal and to call the board of elections immediately.

My mom is working a precinct again, and since Voldemort cut back on polling places, her precinct is supporting 3 districts between 2 cities. 3 different ballots that she has to regulate. The line is about 2 hours long, and people are leaving.

It being Oregon, most everyone I know already voted a week or so ago, and it's been a favorite sport of my fellow Portlanders to say to a near-stranger during casual conversation, "so, vote for Romney?" just for the indignant response.

Here at work, I am the ONLY member of the management team voting for Obama.

These asstards still think the financial crisis was brought on by people on foodstamps.

Real men don't drink alcohol or caffeine for election night.

LSD and DMT all the way.  If the fucking machine elves can't make the process less tedious, nothing will.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

Dammit. Sorry, Roger. For future reference, which photo sites can you see?

I can see it on PD's site, and there's one or two others.  But most image hosting sites are blocked for me.

I've found that if you post the pic on Google+ and then copy the url from the "properties" of the pic, it goes around the nannywall.

Breaking news!  The United States has elected a technocratic, out of touch multi-millonaire warmonger as President.  More news at 11.

That explains the stupid long line we had this morning. And we were there when they opened the doors, which usually has us in and out quick.

It seems that some states, particularly swing states with Republican governors, have deliberately made things more difficult, and have done things to FUBAR the lines.
