Last night I realized that the birth date on my voter registration card was incorrect. I called the Board of Elections and Ethics office this morning. I spoke with a cheery young woman who apparently was also working the polls for today's absentee voting as she put me on hold to give someone a ballot and a pen. She said it was "no problem" that my info was wrong and that I could submit a request for change after the presidential election. So this isn't going to cause a delay when I vote on Nov. 4th? "Nope!" Then she wished me "happy voting" before hanging up.

Oooh. What are the odds? I'd be skeptical, but then, I don't have all that much faith in 'the machine.'

When I voted in the primaries no one asked for ID so I guess I'm good for the presidential.

They sound about as security conscious as my polling place. You're supposed to bring picture ID but I'm not sure I've ever had them ask to see it. They just totally trust that I am who I say I am. It's amazing how the government can be so paranoid in some ways and so oddly trusting in others.

Though the DC city government tends to be especially flaky....

Reading the news, it seems like the safest thing to do would be to bring the doctor who delivered you, the priest who baptized you and your lawyer with you to vote.

At this rate MoBob can probably vote in my place.
