The Nation's Most Irregularious States
No one will vote in the following states today:
- In Indiana, the brand-new touch-screen voting machines are (shockingly) totally useless and confusing. Because voting is both for and run by old people, no one can even turn them on. Poll workers couldn't turn on "about half" of Marion Country's machines.
- All of Washington State is apparently under water. Rain and flooding has already left one person dead, and Rain Gods threaten that more carnage will follow should Washingtonians dare to head to the polls.
- In Ann Arbor, polls opened five minutes late, almost disenfranchising the one guy in line.
- Ohio: Same deal as Indiana. The AP reports that voters rolled their eyes.
