I just got my absentee ballot in the mail (finally!)
It seems that Leonard Peltier is running for President of the United States.
He is, in fact, on the ballot.
(I’m not voting for him; this race is too close for me to nader my vote away.)
Does anybody know anything about this?
Danya, Leonard Peltier is an American Indian incarated in Levenworth. Many people feel he is wrongfully imporsiioned. See site listed. http://www.freepeltier.org/peltier_faq.htm
Regarding your absentee ballot…you think there is enough time for you to re-register to a swing state like Florida? I think we have enough Kerry votes in California. Kerry will need all the help he can get in the â€˜swingâ€™ states. Florida might have as many Jews as Israel. You can always change back to California.
What do you think?
Ya, I know who Leonard Peltier is–that’s part of why I was surprised to see him on my ballot. Esp. as I hadn’t heard anything about a campaign or anything (by him or by others on his behalf) before. Just very interesting.
As for registering in a swing state–alas. Besides the part where I’m not so sure about how that would (legally) work, I already put my ballot in the mail this morning.
