Went to vote. Waited in --- I'm sorry, I'm in new york, on --- line for about an hour. Got to the table with the names in boxes where you're supposed to sign, and some doofus signed their name in my box. It was obviously, looking at the signatures, the guy with the box right above mine, so it was easy to see as an innocent mistake rather than something insidious, but still. After 30s of consultation, the poll worker had me sign in a marginal space --- and then said no, oops, sign in *that* marginal space. And drew some circles and arrows. Not... exactly inspiring of confidence. Then again I don't suppose I'm worried about NY state going red.
