09:48 am - Kiss me, I voted!
Even though Massachusetts doesn't give us those happy stickers we used to get when I was first voted in Ohio, I still walk out of the polling places feeling that way. (Okay, maybe they weren't "Kiss Me, I voted" but rather just "I voted!" with a cute graphic, but still) I'm completely disenfranchise by the process, I hate the majority of candidates remaining, and it's a nasty, rainy day, but I voted.

Hoppie and I vote together (as has previously mentioned). They look us up in the rolls and ask Hoppie what ballot he wants and he says "Republican." The woman who didn't look us up asks me what ballot I want. With a dazzling smile I say, "I'm a registered democrat. I don't get a choice."
"So you two just vote to cancel each other out?"
Current Mood: accomplishedaccomplished

I got a sticker!

Anyway, did you then look as this woman, and, in very, very small words, explain how the primaries work?

In some states, primaries can have some votes which will indeed cancel out.

Take, for instance, my primary today. There is a measure on the ballot that asks whether property taxes should be raised to support additional funding for the local school. Your votes could indeed cancel if you differ on that particular message.

So while it's certainly not an issue for election of candidates, issue votes can certainly be cancelled by each other.

But not in Massachusetts, where this conversation occurred.
