vote at your own risk

Super-ish Tuesday

Massachusetts is one of the states holding Presidential primary elections today. I didn't get to the polls until about half an hour before closing, and my ballot was number 306. Given that the precinct has around 2500 registered voters, that's pretty piss-poor turnout.

On the other hand, Obama was the only name on the Democratic ballot, Romney was fully expected to win the Republican nod (his legal residence is still in Massachusetts) and who the heck cares about the three-way bunfight for the Green-Rainbow Party nomination? Besides the three candidates, and possibly their mothers, that is.
