I early voted today

Tennessee early voting.

I took advantage of early voting today in Sullivan County in Tennessee. They have replaced the old electronic machines with new electronic machines. I am not sure that I find the new machines any better. I saw that it was taking people longer to vote because of the learning curve.

Most of the ballot was dedicated to judges. In Tennessee, we elect some judges. Some judges are appointed however, we periodically get to vote on retaining them. I always vote no. As a general rule, I vote against the incumbent. Even if I like the candidate, I think that we need to institute our own term limits by not voting for incumbents. This would make them pay more attention to us. Regretfully, most will continue reelecting most of the politicians.
