ELECTION DAY FEVER: Send Wonkette Your Polling Place Pix

by Ken Layne

This awaits you in the voting booth.Every election day since 2006, we’ve asked Wonkette Operatives across the nation to send sexy camera-phone pictures of Polling Place hijinx. But this year, we’ll only ask those living in the “voting rights” dirty dozen states with elections today. The question for 2010 is this: Will Nevada’s cruel anti-choice ban on Chicken Costumes at the polls reduce all comedy potential for funny pictures? Find out! Snap some pictures of weirdness and send ‘em to tips at wonkette. And please, for America’s sake, only send pictures with some possible comedy value. We love the “Here’s the empty school cafeteria where I vote” photos for the heartwarming evidence they provide that people actually vote, but there’s not much fun for the Wonkette Reader, if we posted such things. THANK YOU, The Management.

Hola wonkerados.

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

I here I was going to run over to my empty polling place today and take a photo for you. Darn it, no local election today.

Can I just use my crayons to artfully depict my favorite voting comi-tragedy?? I would like to use a butt-load of red.

I won’t rest until the halls of congress are full of demon sheep!

All in favor, say baaaaaa…

I’ll need to bring an x-ray tech to acquire evidence the brownies being sold to fund the school-band’s trip to Berlin, for Love Parade, are in fact pot brownies.

Howabout those shots I took at ‘drag night’ at the local disco back in the late seventies and just say they’re from my local polling place?

As an election worker in an unnamed Nevada county, I can tell you that use of cameras and cell phones inside the polling place is banned. So good luck getting your sexy camera-phone pics, Wonketeers, because a cranky old with a Napoleon complex will COME AFTER YOU. After that 100 foot barrier, go nuts with your chicken costumes and your unassuming Mormon costumes and your Sarah Palin costumes and whatever else you nitwits can think of. But at least up here in the north, the Registrar of Voters does not play.

I guess this means you don’t want the picture of me dropping my absentee ballot in the mailbox three weeks ago. It was great, and funny!

The Nevada races have been great ones for comedy. Apparently the chicken lady is no longer the front-runner to take on Reid for the Senate, and is losing to another woman who wants to end social security, and to re-outlaw liquor; yes, she supports prohibition and is running in Nevada.

[re=594141]V572625694[/re]: I voted by fax. I still have the confirmation page. Think Layne would enjoy that?

VA has an open primary, so Dems can vote in the Repub primary here in Alexandria, but there were zero (0) people at the polling place when we drove by this morning. No one cares because Jim Moran is going to win unless he is caught in bed with a dead cow. And even then, he might win.

You left out the relaxing tongue massages for criminals.

NJB June 8, 2010 at 12:52 pm

But Ken….it’s freaking Nevada! What could possibly get in the way of comedy?

A picture of Orly Taitz voting for her self for California Secretary of State please!
