Happy Primary Day! Skip this if you’re a registered independent, but if you’re a registered Democrat or Republican you should really get down to your polling place today (nobody will be there, it’ll be quick), even if your incumbent is running unopposed—you’ll get to practice on the new paper ballot and scanner system. Come on, it’s embarrassing when nobody votes; let’s do better than last year.

The L wouldn’t presume to tell you how to vote in your local races, unless of course we’ve been telling you how to vote in your local races for some time now.

  • The new system sucks. I effectively failed to vote by not filling out my ballot properly. The scanner could not read it. I was then told I could request a new ballot but after asking one person who had to ask another and then another, it was fairly obvious it was going to be difficult and time consuming and some of us have to, you know, get to work. Nevermind that I was going to be voting for candidates who were not going to win.
