US Election Day - the MB version
After all the debating in the "Clinton/Trump 4 prez" threads it doesn't seem right that MB misses out on the fun of actually voting. This is especially true for the poor MB members who have been so unfairly disenfranchized from the real election just because they aren't US citizens.

So here is our own dramatic one-day thread; the US election, MB style. The polling station is now open - one person, one vote and may the best candidate win!

To add to the realism, the poll is secret - no-one knows who is voting for whom, although we may guess at some members' choice, *ahem* Chula.
If you vote "other" please feel free to explain in a post, but that is at your own discretion.

^ Sorry, only a mod can alter a poll once it has been posted. Also, neither bob nor boob are real-life candidates AFAIK

I believe different states have different rules on write in candidates, and since MB is not centered in any state (or country for that matter) we should be able to have our own rules. And in the absence of real rules I say that I can write in whomever I wish.

In high school I was one of 3 candidates in a class election. After everyone cast their ballots and the teacher counted them, the other two guys had tied, and the last vote was mine. I cast it for Captain Kangaroo and those 14 year olds were legit pissed.

Thanks for this. Now I'm staring at it biting my fingers.
