political movie trailer....non partisan election day voting suggestions.....

well sort of ties into election ads? great movie.....i wish it was mandatory viewing....



and non partisan voting day suggestions....i'm going to vote today (early voting was a long ass line & wait and i'm an extremely impatient person, 5 planets in aries will do that for ya, HAH!) but....

take your local board of elections phone number with you....that way if you encounter a problem you can call them right there and then....also, if you live in a very large city, take the secretary of state's number as a back up...if you have a problem, get the person's name there who is causing the problem (if it's a poll worker)....also, all polling places have a presiding judge, you can ask to speak to them....and if you need help with a ballot, they can help you.....

there's never to be any campaigning within 100 feet of the doors of a polling place....if there is, they are violating the law....take a picture, tell the presiding judge, call the BOE, report it....it's not right....even if it's for your cause or candidate, it is not right....laws are laws and should be followed....

no poll workers should be discussing politics....this should be a no brainer, but not where i vote! and definitely no campaign materials inside the polling location.....if you are wearing something that says 'vote for _____' you very well might be asked to go cover it up, turn your shirt inside out, etc....please don't get upset, it is the law.....

if you feel uneasy about scanning machines, take a photo of your ballot and your ballot #....you can do this....you cannot take pictures of people inside the polling place but you can take photos of your ballot....if you vote on a totally electronic machine and it gives you a receipt of whom you voted for, check it, some have been wrong....ETA: someone commented that in some states it's illegal to take a photo of your ballot, if you don't have time to look up if it's illegal in your state, take a scrap of paper and jot down your ballot # on it and i'm sure you'll remember who you voted for!

and if you are in line before the polls close, they HAVE to let you vote!!!

HALL & OATES 2012!!!!
