I voted and so should you

In Oregon, we get to vote by mailing in our ballots. This is a fabulous system, but it does have its drawbacks.

Pros: Easy, low-effort, can vote naked or in pajamas.

Cons: No instant gratification, no “I voted!” sticker.

In general, though, I highly recommend the voting-by-mail system, and suggest to all who live in places which are not Portland that perhaps you should consider a change of venue.

That said, I’m horribly anxious about the election, and keeping my eye trained on Mahalo’s Election Results page to see if I can use my mind-power mojo to bend the results to my will. So far it isn’t working, but then again, the polls are still open. If you hear a voice in the back of your head saying “Don’t be a jackass. Vote for Obama,” well: you’re welcome.
