INSTRUCTIONS: Leave notes to other voters in voting booths.

February 5, 2008


the Gonzalez:

I thought best to keep this short and simple. I can deal with stern looks from old ladies, but getting too big might get my message removed. My polling place didn't have booths, just slightly partitioned podiums.

Mine was a simple message I like to tell people sometimes.

















"Don't listen to the television
Don't listen to the radio
Don't listen to the politicians
Listen to YOU."

Here's my message on a large post-it, posted next to the ballot holster, where I figured everyone could see it.
































Lincoln:

I placed one message on every page of the voting book. I was thinking of doing one in every voting booth, but my polling place was wide open with no curtains or anything, just these little books on tables. So rather than moving from one to another all suspicious-like, I just hit up my one booklet.

the Gonzalez:

I posted three notes today.  Three little mantras I cooked up for myself during my first election back in 1996.  I know they're a little hokey, but if you've known me for any length of time, you know I'm one hokey cat.

They read thus:

"Remember:
The President is a civil servant.  He works for the people, it is his job."


"Don't listen to the television
Don't listen to the radio
Don't listen to the politicians
Listen to YOU."

"Your vote counts."

Unfortunately I wasn't able to photo-document the event, as the batteries in my camera died.  I hadn't charged them in days.

Most of the rest of the evening was a little odd.  After I dropped Heather off at the theater, I drove off into the windy Bradbury night to do the laundry.  At the laundromat was a little girl with metal teeth that kept smiling at me.  Anytime Obama showed up on the T.V. she'd flip out and cheer for him.  It was very cute.  I was listening to election results on my little radio, hoping I'd no longer be somewhere public when I heard how the election went.  Regardless of how it turned out, I knew I'd end up crying.  I ended up playing on the Ms. Pac-Man machine in the corner once I heard the concession speech.  As I write this, the impact of everything that's happening is only just striking me.  I don't know about you guys, but I feel great.



Lincoln:

Nov. 4, 2008 - Lincoln

I posted two notes on my ballot book. One that called for a brighter future, and one that was a bit more political and hopefully got somebody to think and maybe change their mind.

I love "The lesser of two evils is still evil"

I love that too, very nicely done.

Of course I hope you voted for Obama.

If that is what you were voting for.

These American primaries or caucuses or whatever are jolly confusing.

They make just as much sense over here.

Nicely done! My polling place has tiny little podiums with almost no shield around them, and nothing on them but a pen, and we use optical scan ballots, and all the poll workers can see right in to the podium as soon as you walk away, so I just couldn't find a place to stick a note. Oh well. Maybe I'll have a better idea by November....

Technically those Prop 8 post-its are electioneering.

But you should follow your own trajectory as to whether that matters.

Yes. Yes it is. I knew it when I posted it, but I felt it worth it. I don't normally break laws, especially electioneering, but this should be common sense people.

This should definitly be common sense people - and also that post-it is what made me vote for this completion!

Honestly just leaving a note that said "THIS SHOULD BE COMMON SENSE PEOPLE" would have been a pretty good choice.
