like Obama, my mom voted early today in Illinois but not w/o a fight


at the oscars

My mom writes in to say:

I went to vote today and they said I had already voted. I said WHAT!!!  They said, “you requested an absentee ballot”. I said, “I know nothing about birthing babies or requesting to vote by absentee ballot”. Then they said, “you already voted”. I said, “didn’t early voting just start on Monday?”  They said “yes”.  I said “I have not had time until today to vote and I will stand here until you get your computers fixed”.  I did and they did and after holding up the line for 20 minutes, they got stuff straight and I voted!!!!! Yeah, this is not Florida or Ohio!!

Vote early if you can!!!!!!
