My Ballot

My ballot for the November U.S. election arrived in the mail last week; here’s what it looks like (super-giant version):

I have to decide who to vote for and get the ballot postmarked by November 3 for it to be valid and it has to be back in New York by November 11 to be counted.

If you’re wondering about the multiple opportunities to vote for the Obama/Biden or McCain/Palin tickets, this is an example of electoral fusion, “an arrangement where two or more political parties support a common candidate, pooling the votes for all those parties.”

Peter, I don’t think I knew you were a dualie too. That ballot looks nothing like my Florida ballot (many more languages on mine!)
