Today is Tuesday and you know what that means, likely another round of states voting in the endless GOP primary. I live in Maryland and just got back
from voting. Pretty good first experience for an 18 year old
Here's how it went:
When I walked in, there was an older man separating out the 2 precincts that were voting at the school. 05-22 in the gym and 05-10 in the cafe. I was
05-10 so I went into the cafe and verified my info. I was then given what looked like a giant SIM card and led to a Diebold voting machine. Voting was
straightforward and I voted for Ron Paul. What was interesting was that I was able to select the delegates, even though I thought it was winner take
all. I just selected all for Paul.
Some interesting tidbits i noticed:
-There was virtually no security as far as verifying who was who. I brought in my voter ID card, but don't think I even need it. I just needed my
date of birth and address
-It was totally deserted and run by a bunch of older people, very laid back
-They were happy to see me and told me I needed to get more people my age to come out and vote
-In the time I went, I saw a few families come in and leave, that's it
-One girl around my age voted in another precinct. I asked her who she voted for. She said she didn't even know -___-
