An “I Voted” sticker from Harris County Elections

I voted today. That was unexpectedly hard.

I remember when the elections people used to beg people to please come out to vote because so few people did. Now there are huge lines, which is good. But there were partisans standing there shouting at us waiting in line, which is bad. But even though I had to wait an hour it was all very organized, which is good. Except that all of the spaces in the parking lot were taken up by the partisans camped out with all of their gear so I had to park a block away, which is bad.

An official Harris County Elections voting finger condom

When I went to vote today, the Harris County election people gave me a little finger condom to keep me safe from cooties on the touch screen voting machine. Or maybe to keep the voting machine safe from me.

Hundreds of people in line under the sun

The line to vote at 10am. There were twice as many people when we walked by a half hour later.

Electrion results

Meanwhile, in Nevada… a dead brothel owner whom the newspapers say police suspect was poisoned by 1990ʼs “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss after going for a midnight drive with diminutive porn star Ron Jeremy following his 72nd birthday party with a bunch of hookers has won the 36th District.

Did I mention thatʼs heʼs also dead?

Woo hoo! Clark County is the last county in the entire nation to start counting votes.

We put the “bent” in incumbent!

Iʼm glad the election is over. Now we can stop seeing those terrible political ads and watch the even worse lawyer ads instead.

Schools are closed tomorrow. For Election Day. Why?

Because Clark County needs to use the schools as polling places.

So kids who canʼt even vote get Election Day off.

A voting sign

Thatʼs strange. I didnʼt even know Bumoto was running this year. Heʼs not on my ballot.
