 Then yesterday, on The Thom Hartmann Show, it was mentioned that, once again, those who control how and when we vote are pushing tactics that can make damn sure it’s likely your vote won’t count, if you’re not one of them. Example given: the Alabama ballot has two spots on top where you can check vote straight Republican, or vote straight Democrat. However if you check that then also check Moore or Jones your vote is thrown away. Read more
