Our state moved up the date of our primary so we could be more important, you know, like New Hampshire, and Iowa. Instead, moving up our primary, pissed off the party leaders and now it's a big mess.
So people are confused...
But I'm not, I
That's right, I listen to NPR. If you need unbiased news, straight talk, and a world view-hey they pump in the BBC! listen to NPR!
But for now, here are some important tips for voting on Tuesday, be ye Democrat, Green, Republican, or Uncommited. (I did that in alphabetacal order so as to be unbiased. Actually, for Tuesdays voting, you sort of have to take a stand, so I'll get to that in a minute...)
Ok, in Michigan on January, whatever, this Tuesday...WHEN YOU VOTE...because wars are fought for rights, and isn't it a right to vote? Whatever. Peace now.
Ok, back to the voting...
Michigan voting, they are going to want to see...
1. Your ID
MI drivers Liscence, MI ID Card, US passport, military id with photo, school/college id with photo, personal id card from another state. Or sign an affidavit attesting that you do not have photo id. visit www.michigan.gov/vote for more info
2. You will have to pick a Democrat or Republican ballot. Don't be pissed. It's the way it is. I warned you a head of time. It's not for president, it's for the primary, don't fret.
All the Republicans that are running are on the ballot.
Not all the Democrats are on the ballot.
3. Write ins will not be accepted and invalidate your whole ballot. So, if your favorite candidate isn't there (uh, eh, on the Dem side) just mark "Uncommitted."
Way to go Dems, you really thought that one through. Or way to go Michigan you really thought that one through. Either way, the State of Michigan looks all hillbilly again. Which is funny, because we have nary a hill in sight.
4. This is also a LOCAL issues vote for several areas.
Please go vote. Just go vote. It's good for you. Be part of the system. Think of it as your own little way of sticking it to the MAN. Why? The MAN, he doesn't expect you to vote, he pretty much counts on you not voting. So go vote.
