This account of trying to cast a ballot in Los Angeles on Feb 5 is simultaneously the funniest and most rage blackout-inducing thing I've seen all day:
"I'm sorry, we didn't bring our booklets." This was true. We didn't.
"SIGH!" Sighed the grumpy poll worker.
No seriously, I swear to god, this poll worker sighed and we could actually hear it articulated and everything. There was even a word balloon. We're in a war and the economy's tanking but apparently, having to spend more than 5 seconds talking to confused voters is the cross too heavy for even Jesus Christ himself to bear." (via LAist)
It gets much much worse.
And apparently, I wasn't the only Angeleno disenfranchised by bureaucratic tomfoolery. I never thought I'd say this, but wow, I miss living in Wisconsin.
