Seems rather unfair that we can't stuff the ballot box from out of state. :-)

Congratulations on the nomination and good luck with the voting.

I second the motion for the secretive stuffing of ballots. Oh no! Does that make me a Member-of-an-Organized Political-Party-Who-Shall-Remain Nameless?
Congrats on the nomination!
