  1. so you don’t have to show ID. Just walk in and vote, boy oh boy legal or not, registered or not, just sway in and vote, what this country has become is so disgusting.

  2. A thought. Currently we have 13 out of 51 seats filled by women. That is down from 18 in 2009. This election with so many seats up, it could go down to 8! Just food for thought while you look at the options.

  3. Some of these commenters must not vote, because if they did they would know that you have to sign your name when you receive your ballot, and they match your signature with the signature you submitted with your voter registration. But facts, whatever
