Quick Summary: Even more tons of trouble.

Is voting dead in America? My wife and I will vote absentee, until they figure out how to take that away from us, too.

We've voted permanent absentee for years. I love the CA law - no hassle, just do it.

Republican Maryland Governor Bob Erlich has been back peddling lately because of voting problems in the state.

He's even called a special assembly of the MD legislator to pass a law to allow paper ballots for the up coming MD Governors election.

It almost sounds like a gimmick when you hear it in the local news. Just something to look out for.

Hi, everyone. You are all correct: this stuff is scary, and absentee voting is the way to go. Maybe instead of voter registration drives, the Dems should be working on Vote Absentee drives!
