Here in Santa Cruz county (I don't know about other counties) you can register as a "permanent absentee voter," so you don't even have to ask for the absentee ballot, they just send it. So I mailed my ballot before Arianna Huffington dropped out, and sat back to enjoy the show. Just now I'm watching the talking heads on MSNBC talking about what makes California so special. Sometimes it just seems special to be a native Californian, not an immigrant.
