Voting in Florida

Every four years, it's embarrassing to live in Florida. It's the same story each time. ”Dems will win here, Reps will win there, but Florida is an important swing state!” Yet every election, we fuck up. Big.

Seriously, I want to be a part of the process, I want my vote to matter. I'm told ”people died so you could have these freedoms.” Then fucking treat it that way! I don't care whose fault it is, just man up and fix it.

We give 29 electoral college votes to the candidate who wins our state and our polls close at 7 est. That's super early in the election, meaning we could decide an election for a candidate very early in the night. Instead, we look like a bunch of idiots.

How are we still counting votes? The election ended Tuesday. It's motherfucking Friday. Our 29 electoral votes mean jack shit now.

So thank you, fuck ups. I'm glad I could help decide the next president.

Just start voting for 2016 so you'll have your votes counted on time.

To have 29 electoral votes mean there are a crap load of folk living there. The electoral votes for president isn't cast until December anyway. So why are you complaining again?

I read "Vomiting in Florida" at first...

Just to relieve you:
You (as Floridians) don't really leave a bad impression in the International media;
America is one big clusterfuck to us to lol at.
We are happy that we don't have any deposit of oil, though...

They've been counted by now. It wasn't 'til Friday though. Florida is basically a clusterfuck during elections.

So why do they keep saying it's not included? As in why is it a mess? :?

The presidency was decided on Tuesday without Florida's votes. Everyone voted on Tuesday, though, but Florida didn't get their shit together until the Friday after the elections.

Well, we use the Electoral College to decide. Whoever gets 270 Electoral Votes first wins. So yeah, everything after the 270 doesn't matter for the presidency.
