Interesting. I’ve been getting texts non-stop for weeks now, 8man. None from Trump. Different numbers from all over the state.

For the primary, my polling place had me use a touchscreen kiosk to create my ballot. The kiosk then prints the ballot and you have to carry it by hand to feed into a scanner on the other side of the room to actually cast your vote. Not even shitting you. It's like the least efficient procedure I've ever seen but this is somehow supposed to give more faith in the integrity of the ballot box.

It also allows anyone to vote anywhere regardless of ballot. It's a great system and gets rid of the partially marked bubble issue. That you think it's inefficient is laughable

Yep.  I want them to know there is at least one person out there that wants them gone.  STAY ON YOUR TOES JUDGES.

I got a text from a Greg Orman worker reminding me to vote. I think they got my number when I signed the petition to get him on the ballot.

I also got this text from a 316 number:

Quote
Hey, Mary here. Tomorow is Election Day! Have you made your plan to vote? Will you vote on way to work? During lunch? Or on your way home?

I have no idea who Mary is.

Also, because I have an iphone and an Apple Watch, I'm being inundated with vote reminders on both devices. Good to know Apple is doing their part to increase voter turnout among the tech-zombie dumbasses.

I think the inefficiency he’s talking about is printing it AFTER filling it out electronically. I actually do prefer just bubbling in paper myself.

It's all the advantages of an electronic machine with a paper backup. Not surprised the voter suppression crowd hates it

If you guys just text "stop" you will not get those texts.  But don't text "stop you stupid idiots" because that doesn't work.  Just text "stop".

In the past, my touchscreen kiosk kept a paper backup. You could actually watch the machine print the paper backup on a little receipt slip behind glass in the bottom right corner of the voting kiosk. But this year was the first time the machine actually hands the printed ballot back to me, for me to immediately scan it into another machine. If anybody knows the extra security this adds, please let us know.

Elections have consequences. Make your voice heard. Do you know where to vote?

I'm going to play along and see where this goes.

Yeah, the main character starts texting stop to things like his kids crying or his boss getting on his case or his wife's annoying habits, but then he realizes that he's actually stopping the things that make him who he is and that there are unintended consequences to just stopping things in your life that you don't like and now he would do anything to hear his kids cry or see his wife's annoying habit but he never will again but then something happens and he can and it's a happy ending.

i'm guessing that you're supposed to review it so you know your vote was accurately recorded.

I voted yes on all of them the last time because of the big campaign to vote them out so Brownback could replace them with judges who wouldn't make the state adequately fund schools. I voted yes this time because I feel like Kobach is likely to win and would want to do the same. In other elections, I've always voted no.

I'm sure they will just make you vote on a provisional, then proceed to not count that vote.
