I remember when I used to be excited and proud when I went to vote. Now I’m angry and mistrustful of the whole process.
This is the first election in a long time that I haven’t felt only resignation when casting my ballot. I hope that there’s a decisive result tonight.
I’m hearing some people say “get rid of the electoral college” – I don’t think that’s necessarily a good idea. Here’s what I would say, if I got to make the rules:
- Electoral votes should be split – popular vote by district.
- ALL primaries have to be on the same day.
- Black out news coverage until the last polls close. None of this “calling” a state with 10% of the vote counted. Wait for it, dammit!
Hey, look! Sean Tevis is at 50% for Kansas House! Neat!
Now back to chewing fingernails…
Attention US type people: If you haven’t voted already, please go do it tomorrow. It’s your last chance.
