c’est la vote

30 September, 2008

So I decided to request an absentee ballot for the election because I didn’t want to spend $20+ extra in gas and worry about timing for getting all the way out to my polling place on a Tuesday. I had done the same thing in 2006 when it was time to vote for governor, so I knew what the process was like.

But I’d forgotten about the secrecy envelope:

I just love it. It makes me feel like I need to set up a voting booth in my kitchen. Maybe get something like a big tri-fold posterboard or something…

    Telling the Internet about it doesn’t count though, right? Of course not. We can keep a secret.

    Well…at least I didn’t tell you who I voted for! Heh.

    I would be tempted to send that vote to postsecret.

    True, you didn’t, but that’s hardly the point.

    It’s not your vote that appears to be secret. It’s the envelope.

    Funny! I was just filling out my request for an absentee ballot since I don’t want to drive an hour home on Monday night to vote Tuesday morning at home. I have not done this before, so I’m looking forward to my own secrecy envelope. 🙂

    If I were a mail carrier I would want to open them up….

    Colsy! If it wasn’t an official vote, I’d send it to Frank.

    Rez: Ah, good point…

    Delicious: Hee hee… Something else we share in common!

    Llama: HAHAHAHA! So true. It be like “just a peek…”

    Lawful Lady: I’ll have to check it out!

    Kelly: WHAT?!? I didn’t get a pencil. *sniff*
