I’m being proactive this week. I called the Prince George’s County Board of Elections to check to see what I needed to do to get my address updated in order to receive my ballot for the November election. If you remember I was not able to vote in the Maryland Primary Election due to an error in record keeping at the Board of Elections and I am not about to let that happen again. The woman that I spoke to remembered me (I really did raise a stink back then), she told me that I could either mail or fax my request. I’m going to fax and then follow up with a call.
As I was catching up on some of my favorite blogs today I came across a link to The Overseas Vote Foundation. I clicked, I read, I’m impressed. They have all the information you need right on this one website. I’m using it. Of course I’m also going to send my fax, well because I WILL VOTE IN THIS ELECTION). Thanks Monica for linking to this site! What a wonderful resource for us Americans overseas.
Now I realize I’m probably opening up a can of worms but here goes…
I watched a muppet video that was posted on youtube in which the American flag is displayed incorrectly. As I was waiting for the video to load I looked at the flag and thought something just didn’t seem quite right and that led to my google search in which I found this. Notice anything wrong? How about this one? Do these guys even have a clue? I mean the Muppet’s I can understand, but a man who wants to be our Commander in Chief AND “The” Commander in Chief? Common guys! Oh, and if you are a geek like me here’s a link to the Flag Code.
