I voted. Still do not believe in the process, but considering the disaster of 2016, and the sleepless nights that election caused, I went. Not a big trek for me: Just press the button for the elevator and head to the basement.

I could not bring myself to vote for Cuomo. Not about the "greater good". Without pontificating, I still have to live with me and my conscience. Considered supporting the lieutenant governor, but it was both or neither, so neither it was.

Now to see if the new Checks and Balances will really work. C'mon, Nancy. Let's get those White House investigations rolling!

Supposedly the House of Reps is gearing up for that. Go Dems, go!!

I've seen variations of that, but the one you quoted is incomplete. It should finish "in favor of a kick in the head".

I also did not want to vote for Cuomo. Nor did I want to vote for Sean Patrick Mahoney for Congress. On the way to the polls I thought hold your nose and just vote for them. I was at the polls about 9 o'clock and was #78. That was very high for my district. They told me it has been steady voting since they opened. I am in a very republic area so who knows what that means.
I still have a big Kennedy button and it has a picture of Kennedy - above the picture it says Kennedy below it says for president.

I have my big Kennedy-Johnson button, but it's nothing like the one Mark found. As Dylan sang, The times they been a-changin'.

Found it! At some time I marked the back "1960" It's 4" dia. I was all of 12 and a few friends and I formed "The Kennedy Club."



P.S. I'm back from voting. I was number 293 to vote from my election district (about eight are quartered at my poll location). It was just before noon, but I have idea how respectable the turnout has been so far in the ED.

That's an anti-LGBTQ button if I ever saw one. emoticon

I'm vote for Cuomo, but not with a big smile. Heading out to vote now and wearing the button that I dug out for the 2016 election. No idea how many decades ago I got it or whether something in particular prompted it, but it's the closest thing I have to a campaign button and still wear in the polling center:

-- Fight Poverty of the Mind --

It is no reference to that Ben Carson thing.

If it's raining where you live, it's no excuse. Go vote.

Richard and I both voted before we left Bellingham last month. WA state either sends a paper ballot which people mail back or drop off at locations around their town, or the district sends a link to a website with the ballot. Mark it, download to computer as a pdf, add a signature, then email it in. Easy peasy. And yes, I've voted from a variety of different countries over the years - we do our primaries and special elections this way too.

I don't either, but as my wise older sister says, you have to just grit your teeth and stay the course. She has the same dilemma with Menendez in New Jersey. Not that I think the race will be close, but any vote for a third party candidate is a vote for the Republican challenger.

Still don't want to vote for Cuomo after all the lies he created about Cynthia Nixon just to ensure the "religious" vote. "By any means necessary", right? Supposedly he gets what needs to be done, done. But still.

What ever happened to ethics? Wasn't that a requirement for Freshman Philosophy? I know I took it in school.
