Did you know I still have to vote at a Church?  Also if I want to vote absentee I must answer why I need to vote absentee.  It should be a law that you cannot ask personal business of why you choose to vote absentee and no one should be forced to vote in a church.  I would like to  know if you can vote absentee with out having to provide a reason.

thats my point, absentee voting in Virginia requires you to give a reason why you are voting absentee which I believe violates my civil rights of privacy.

I have been voting absentee for years.  They keep sending me the forms every year, so I am on a permanant absentee status.  Too bad I forgot how I came by this.  It would not matter to me that I would have to vote in a church though.  Be above letting it bother you.  I attend the local symphonie's concerts given here in a local catholic church.  A church, OK, but the acoustics are great. 

   I defense of absentee voting however, There is the advantage of taking as much time as you will.  Sometimes I need to review the propositions.  I can't remember everything.  I personally believe everone should vote absentee if you can.
