Voted this morning, no line to speak of at the polling place.

Moving the same month as the election creates additional bureaucracy.

Regarding the election, I still feel exactly the way I did four years ago. Anyone who cares can go see what I said then.

Statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.
—Samuel Clemens/Mark Twain, "The Mysterious Stranger"
