I live in NY, and because I’m a registered voter but not registered with either party, I cannot vote in the primaries.
I suppose this is a problem I could have remedied before today, so that I could have voted; however. However I didn’t. Mostly because I find it incredibly irresponsible that NY still has such an antiquated system. Mostly because I don’t WANT to be registered as a party member. But mostly because, as has been my refrain for the last few days, sometimes having to choose is incredibly hard, and it’s easier when other people make decisions for me.
Don’t flame me; I know the danger in such ambivalent attitudes.
Anyway, because I couldn’t vote I don’t have a voting narrative. However, I read this post over at elevene today with increasing anger. Not only (or necessarily) because there was a mistake made at a poling station, and not only because it resulted in someone leaving the poll without having been able to cast his vote, but because the jerk at the booth kept blaming some other lady for what was probably his mistake.
Nothing peeves me more than people blaming other people to save their own ass.
