Suddenly I'm not a registered voter? What the frak!!
I went to vote at a church in my neighborhood this afternoon, in Valley Village, CA
My name was not on their list, despite being registered in CA for 17 years and having my sample ballot with my name and address on it. I have never moved either.
POOF!! I'm just gone.
They checked twice, no joy. I had to vote with a provisional ballot and that really ticked me off. It's a pink envelope that you seal and they put it on, what looked to me like the floor?! Huh?
I didn't even get the rush of putting my ballot into the yellow slot. Yes, I get a rush, I am that weird.
The poll worker, Dennis was nice, he said the same thing happened to him that morning and it's no biggee. But it felt like a biggee to me. I HAZ A SAD!
Dennis gave me some numbers to call. But I know I am registered, I haven't missed an election since I first voted in 1988.
And dammit I'm in a Blue state.
3:09 PM PT: Well, at least the hold music is soothing me - on hold, will update if I get a human.
