So, how did your primary voting experience go today?

I gave the Republican poll worker some shit today, and wish I'd done more.
Some years ago both hubby and I re-registered as Unaffiliated here in NC.
But we always request a Democratic ballot.

So, today when I signed in, they first asked if I had ID. Thank you, Republican
a$$holes. But then they hurried up to say I didn't need to show it, they were
just practicing for 2016. Great.

So, then, since I'm registered unaffiliated, they ask which ballot I'd like.
So I say, "how about one of each?" Pretty good laughs from the Dem
poll workers, but the Repub guy says, "Oh, no! You can only have one".
It's a joke, dummy. On you.

So I request a Democratic ballot. And he says, in good Repub fashion, "Democrat".

At the time I thought, you a$$hole, if you're going to work the polls, you ought to
at least learn the name of both major parties. But I didn't call him on it. Next time,
I will. Because this particular guy is always there.

How did primary day go for you?

Perspective

I thought I'd take a look at the pier from underneath to see if I liked it for the May contest, but don't think
it's really as effective for looking up as it is for perspective.
