If you aren't here at election time, we don't need your vote. If you want to live down south for 6 months, vote there!

So, there is some problems with the voting huh. Until this is figured out then Al shouldn't be in the US Senate now. Which means that his vote won't count for the health care (socialist) bill. Also, Amy. Your a lawyer voting for the bill would mean a socialist vote. Remember it won't count because of the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.

We were told by the DFL how clean and fair our elections were in MN. It seems there really was a problem.

So if I have to be out of town for work on election day, I shouldn't be able to vote?

Bet that wouldn't be passed with such a huge majority...and why not? If they have to provide an ID and last 4 digit of SS # on the Absentee Ballot, why not at the polling place? What does the DFL have to hide?

I served on a Citizens Jury For Election Recount last summer. It's only now coming to surface. The absentee ballot system in MN is poorly run, with little, if any security. Moreover, the recount process is not transparent and equal in every county. Finally, MN may change their absentee ballot system..hopefully.

Al Franken would still be unemployed. The DFL will NEVER allow only legal voters to vote.

Nothing like absentee ballots to get the neo-cons frothing at the mouth.
