So I'm Committing Election Fraud
Somewhat like our friends at ACORN, I'm going to commit voter fraud. No, I'm not registering the entire starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys, the Buchanans of Llanview, PA or the last 20 winners of the Breeders Cup Classic (and clearly, Pleasantly Perfect is a member of Equines for Obama anyway).
What I'm going to do is vote via an absentee ballot at my current address. However, I won't actually be living there on Election Day. Where will I be living? I don't know yet, not the state, much less the city or specific location! In any case, I won't be in my new location for the required amount of time before the election (it ranges from 10-20 days). I can't vote in my new place and technically, I can't vote in my old place.
What should I do? I thought about just voting for President, but if I'm out of state it's really a separate election. I could just not vote at all, but that doesn't seem fair - why should I be disenfranchised by an accident of the calendar? Is this a case of something that's morally right, but legally wrong, or am I just trying to find a justification to do what I want?

|So, I mailed in my ballot today. All but two of the races were uncontested anyway. It's like I live in Soviet Russia. |

|Of course, in Soviet Russia, ballot mails YOU!
Thank you. Thank you very much. I'll be here all week.
