RE: hum....

I'm just glad so many folks did go to the polls.  We did have a record
turnout this year.  Our township still has the old punch card method, but
there was a good deal of "educational" spots on TV urging folks to look at
their ballots before and after punching and to make sure there were no
dimple, hanging or otherwise confusing chads.  Last election, nothing really
lined up like it should, the holes did not necessarily line up with the
chads on the cards and there were at least two chads I had to take out of
the slide and punch through off the surface.  This was much better.  
I would have preferred the system Jim used.  Everything was quite orderly
and people were congenial regardless of their political bias on the whole in
the township.

Hi All,

Almost hate to say that ours are paper ballots and an ebony soft lead
pencil, usually about 4 pieces of paper.  Guess that's a little ahead of
taking a colored bean and tossing it into a basket.  No line, in and out in
about 15 minutes.  Rich in Z-5 where it's supposed to freeze tonight
