Tough, that is exactly what happened. One friend of mine went to 3 different places before he was finally told, " oh, you have to go down to city hall and re-register..." Because he was on his way to work at the fire dept., he didn't didn't have the the to wait for hours in line. It is entirely possible that the people running the election here are complete muppets, but it seems kinda fishy that the only place in the state it happened was in the two cities that carried the last election to get our current governor elected.

Apparently it didn't mean much because the incumbent won by about 20k votes. That is why I'm still willing to chalk it up to incompitence.

Either way, we had two shitty candidates. I've never seen people more apathetic about an election.
