I voted today. Via Absentee Ballot which, aw shucks, just found out I could have mailed in. Silly me drove to the County Clerk office and dropped it off.
And to think I was just at the Post Office the other day which is like a block away from the County Clerk office. Man oh man do I make it hard on myself. I could have turned it in at the Post Office and watched them walk it down the street.
Why doesn't the government just mail me my ballot? The census made it. My tax return made it. My stuff from EBAY has not yet made it but I didn't vote for that, I bid for it. How come the government doesn't mail a ballot to every one of voting age? What a great 18th birthday present!
You're simply registered to vote when you turn 18 and then again when you are released from prison. Or, like when you sign up for selective service, because it's a law, you could get a card that would serve as both draft and voter card, each side could have it's own little emblem. Fun. 2 birds, 1 card.
I bet that would save America a lot of money.
