The Democratic base is unenthusiastic this year. Does that describe you? If so, maybe on one of those days that you're feeling more fired-up than usual, get an absentee ballot. You can get one from your local Board of Elections. I was able to download the application from their website. (You're going to be out-of-state on Nov. 2nd, right?) They mailed me my Absentee Ballot. It's a PAPER ballot! I filled it out and will be mailing it in October. I not voting Tuesday November 2nd. No long lines. No suspect electronic voting machine.
Before November even comes near, I will have already voted against the Teapublicans with a paper ballot. You should, too.
