RE: A must read editorial about the Tea Party group True the Vote
In Washington state, almost every county votes by mail. I love it, because it's convenient, and gives me time to do further research on people/issues as I'm filling out my ballot if I'm still now sure how I'm going to vote on a particular person/issue.
However, when many people were still going to polling places, I would drive by my polling place every hour or so just to see how things were going. I live in a very racially/ethnically diverse neighborhood, and so I wanted to keep my eye out for disruptors. Fortunately, I never saw anything disturbing.
However, outfits like True the Vote really bother me. I know that their sole purpose is to intimidate people into not voting, and I think there should be jail sentences for anybody who indulges in that type of behavior.
Silence is consent.
