It feels weird to be disenfranchised and for it to be one's own fault.
I checked three weeks ago for policy on Illinois absentee ballots. The deadline was gone and dead.
No, the Internet can't solve my problems either. Instead, I went back to doing the other parts of my civic duty: the rest of my undemocratic life. But sadly, I won't get to vote in an election I've been urging people to vote in. The most important election of 2010.
There's a lack of control in my life today. I feel the need to sit on a couch and tell people that I'm at the mercy of all too many crazies.
But I don't worry. I don't despair. Andy and I are going to go bake a cake.
