We are two registered Democrats who voted absentee for Romney and Ryan.

Guess it’s time we change our party affiliation when our Democratic Party since Kennedy no longer represents middle class working people and the middle class.

I believe that you are tow of many that are not voting for the socialist democrats that are now in control of the Democratic party. I also used to be a Democrat but changed a few years ago when I saw the direction they were going. I am first and foremost a American and now have no party affiliation and I like it that way.

Not surprising considering registered Dems outnumber registered Repubs about 2:1 in Mason City.

Interesting… When did voting by email become acceptable? I guess if you don’t care about privacy it would work. But I would think it would invite fraud.
