Because at 8:30am when I arrived at my polling place (which had moved and took some trouble to find), they had me listed on the rolls as "Green" instead of "Democrat."
I changed my party affiliation when Bush stole the election from Gore, and I re-registered as a Democrat. I know I was a registered Democrat on the rolls in 2004 when I voted in that primary, because I voted a Democratic ballot.
How in the HELL did they have me down as Green today, 4 years later? I haven't changed my party affiliation or re-registered.
I didn't vote. They wouldn't let me vote the Democratic ticket. I get that the rules is the rules and I respect the rules? But some clerical error meant that I got no vote today.
I am sad.
Obama, you would have had my vote.
Yes we can.
