Well, he might have.

“He joked, ‘I can’t tell you who I voted for.’”

That’s for sure.

Whether he voted electronically, or fed his ballot into the computer (Chicago offers both options), Pres. Obama has no way of knowing that he really voted for himself.

And so it is for all of us, except those few who live in precincts where they count the paper ballots openly, by hand.

In any case, just as the president “can’t tell you who I voted for,” neither can the rest of us know that the “winner” on Nov. 6 has really won, or by how much.

That is no small problem, as we’ll likely see—again—in just eleven days.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
