making it matter

vote
I was thinking that people who are planning to vote against Bush, but who live in states like Texas who's electors will almost certainly go to Bush are screwed. But there's a way to game our system. Texans can register to vote in a battleground state and vote by absentee ballot. All you need is a friend who lives in the state who isn't above a little voter fraud and will let you register at their address.

Is this a bad idea? If enough people do this, will it eventually lead to abolishment of the electoral college?

That seems drastic, but I've never heard of it before. Maybe you are onto something.

My state of PA is rather conservative, but CT isn't nearly as much so (which I'll be in, come Nov.) Connecticut is the 10th most liberal state in the US. muahaha.

I think you need to spread your devious little theories!

My niece is from PA, and will be in college in CA in the fall, so I told her to absentee vote in PA cause that will matter more. That's where this whole idea came from. You should probably do the same thing. I don't know if one or two votes matter much, but at least you'll be spending your vote where it might make a difference.

I like your approach. Need to spread the word to work, though. Very naughty. heh heh.

Right-wing voters from "blue" states could do the same thing.
