    Vote early and often? It doesn't appear that we can do that on this site! @John Winn, go see the guy on the right in the cartoon that @Bruce Vail posted above!

    Well, you see I've not voted yet so if you buy my vote you, in effect, get to vote twice. Red wine might work (gave up the traditional electoral whiskey decades ago). How desperate are you ? Think about it.

    Many thanks!! I got out my magnifying glass, but I can't seem to print out a clean enough version to make it all out. Old age is catching with these eyeballs!

    Poll closing:
    Midnight in which time zone? I've voted, but @John Winn (also in the Pacific time zone) is, I believe, still waiting for a buyer! :bounce:

    Thanks for adding this. I wonder how successful this labor system was and whether it persisted.
