    Hey now, Demon, don’t be crackin on those folks, they’ve used manual bar typewriters before!

    I think these people grew up using an abacus instead of a slide rule. I am talking old here.

    Demonbeck,

    I would hope that you have the upmost respect for those “100 year old poll worker volunteers.” One day, you may not be able to experiene elections like you and others take for granted. When the me only generation takes over, you will not be able to get a volunteer to do a darn thing!!!!!!!!!!

    I can have the “upmost” and the utmost respect for them and still complain about how slow they type. They do a wonderful job very slowly.

    I was one of only two voters there at my polling place in Duluth (insert Ralph barb here).

    Also, I would glady trade a few extra seconds of inconvienence in exchange for machines with an actual paper trail, instead of a flash-updatable Microsoft Access application.

    Some of us aren’t retired and have jobs and families to take care of.

    This is why making jokes on these blogs is dangerous, some people can’t get over a smart-ass comment and just leave it for what it is.

    Demon, for someone who has a family toi take care of, you certainly spend a lot of time on here… 🙂

    Wait, let me guess…you run an eBay bidness out of your garage?

    No, I am studying to become “a sandwich artiste,” since Erick took my job as a Chik-Fil-A chef and political blogger.

    Is Jared Thomas the guy from those commercials? I certainly hope not. I don’t want to see him at Subway everyday.

    I went to my polling center at just after 7:00 this morning only to find about 10 people waiting in line. As my wife and I waited another 20 or so showed up. I am borderline line South Cobb/West Cobb, so make of that what you will. But I thought turnout to be a little high compared to my former precinct in Sandy Springs where I usually voted alone on primary day.

    But imagine my surprise when I go to pull the lever for Gingrey, my choice is Honeycut, the GOP patsy thrown up against David Scott in the 13th. Now I know the lines have been redrawn in my area, so last week I checked the SOS site to confirm my districts and I was still listed in the 11th but low behold I go vote and I am in the 13th.

    Just be glad that you don’t live in Macon, as a caller on the radio said that she signed in as a Republican voter and got a Democrat voter card! Another guy voting at the smae time she was faced the same problem. Now that is a problem that we need to be worried about.
