Splintering the Vote – Election 2012

November 6, 2012

That when you struggle with the monstrous sheet of paper that is the election ballot for 2012, you almost drop it on the floor. And in your haste to catch it, you bang your forehead on the wooden, makeshift voting booth and stagger to the side – briefly seeing stars. Then, when you reach out to steady yourself, your hand slides down the leg of the booth driving a sliver of wood into your hand and then wrist, severing an artery and making your realize as you lose consciousness, that your vote will count…you’ll just never know if your candidate won the election.
