We moved last year, but we're a lazy sort. When my purse got stolen in August, I got a new Driver's License and they asked me if I wanted to register to vote (something I hadn't done since we moved). My lazy ass thought two birds, one stone, KABANG!! I am now registered to vote at my new address.

Fast forward to election day, I had no idea where I was supposed to vote, so I went back to where I voted last time. My hyphenated name always causes me problems and they couldn't locate me in the book, so I had them look up Mr. Hobbitfeet and he was there. So they took my vitals so they could call the courthouse and find out why I wasn't there if I had registered in August, and they looked at my address, then looked at Mr. H.'s and uh-oh guess who didn't change his address; and guess who got him busted for voter fraud?

Bottom-line thanks to me Mr. H. can only vote in the Federal election, and since he wasn't with me when I voted, he is going to be PISSED when he finds out because he was really hoping to stick it to ALL the men. He loves his civic duty.

By the way, I was in the wrong polling place.

Something very important for you to remember for as long as you live in Illinois' answer to East Berlin -- never, never, never divulge any more information than absolutely necessary.

Remember the family pool pass fiasco?

In Charleston, it always hurts to ask.

I know that's true. I ask you; however, am I my husband's keeper? I changed his address on his driver's license, his car registration,and the post office. Mr. I-Wanna-Vote should take care of his own voting needs. While I feel bad that I got him caught, I am not accepting 100% culpability.

Was it at the high school? I got put on "federal-only" voting there one election. The blind old bat can never find anyone's name who might vote differently than her.
