Voting

In Oregon voting day is not really seen as a big deal. Everything is done by mail in votes so its more of a deadline. With no polling places or voting booths I am sure that the state is saving lots of money. With all the problems and corruption going on with electronic voting its weird to be so removed from that. Apparently with 100% mail in ballots Oregon has some of the lowest error rates and corruption reports, I gotta say I prefer it. (Yes I am fully aware with the abstracted layer something could be rigged but at least there is a paper trail.) It is also easier for me to convince L. to vote since there are no lines to worry about.
Probably the funniest political posters we saw were ones for a proposition that said "protect teenage girls". I mean how much closer can you get to "Won't someone think of the children".
