Planting Acorns

I voted yesterday. And I might vote again today. Unless I skipped a step at the speedy early voting processing center in a dreary government building in Mission, there's nothing preventing me from returning. I scribbled my name and address on a form, but unlike on election day, it was never checked against a list of registered voters. Neither was I asked to provide identification. Presumably, a poll worker is assigned to that tedious task, but since such screenings would take place after ballots are cast, the potential for fraud seems very real.

    Next Tuesday and the following days or weeks will be a national nightmare.

    I honestly don't have any idea what's going to happen, BGO.

    I voted at the same location. After filling out the form it was run through a computer two different times. I am sure they were cross checking registration at that time. It is against the law to ask for ID.

    Interesting, Martini. The form I filled out was yellow. A clerk tossed it into a pile and waved me on to a volunteer in charge of the electronic voting cards.
