How We Do It In America

My absentee ballot is due to be delivered to my office today so I can fill it out and Fed Ex it back to America. My coworkers wanted to know how we vote in America - online? Tick a box? Punch out a hole?

I told them we take our guns and shoot holes in the boxes next to the candidate we want to indicate our support for that candidate.

I mean, duh.

That sounds like fun - maybe we should try it.

But, sticking as we (mostly) do to old-fashioned pencil and paper, we have been a bit bemused by all the hoohas over "hanging chads" and tales of machine trickery (I notice we don't seem to have heard any more about the various experiments we've tried with some of those).

I use a bow and arrow, because I'm old school like that.
