Vote like a Floridian
To promote its movie, HBO got its hands on a few of the actual Votomatic Florida voting machines used in the controversial 2000 presidential election, complete with butterfly ballots and hanging chads. The cable network is making a dozen of them available for residents in Los Angeles and New York to try their hand at voting, Florida-style, tomorrow. But hey, HBO! What about D.C.?! How about a little love? We’d like to hang some chads of our own. We’ll just have to settle for trying to crash Frank Luntz’s house: Amidst his vast collections of pop-culture and political memorabilia, the pollster and message guru has a punch-card voting booth from Florida, signed by none other than Katherine Harris.
