Hopefully before the next election the voting process gets cleaned up so we don't appear to be like a 3rd world country. ;) It will be quite an impressive accomplishment for us here in Florida. I like how Oregon has mail in voting to decrease state costs.

The state of Washington also has voting by mail only. I wonder if many ballots are discarded because they arrived after election day?

I have to see it go into the box. I live in the Peoples Republic of Illinois and would not trust them not to misplace the mail in ballots. We have early voting here as well as absentee.

When I look at the pictures of voting lines in FL, I just don't understand it. I'm amazed and impressed that people are willing to stay in line that long to vote- especially after the presidential results were called. In that sense, I'd be proud to be a Floridian (although those of us in IL are just pretty much proud if an elected official isn't en route to prison!).

Since it took until Saturday to finish counting,  Florida’s true electoral destiny is to provide the nation comic relief.  I did hear A punch line the other day about the electorate of Florida on NPR from P. J. O'ROURKE: "Florida just can't figure this voting thing out. They're in the voting booth ordering the early bird special." which really made me chuckle since our lengthy ballots looked like menus this year.
