Should I send my friend Chad to help count votes?

"The office of Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez on Wednesday morning issued a news release insisting that the “unprecedented length of the ballot” ..."

Reporter: How long is it?
Mayor Gimenez: That's rather a personal question, sir.

when i got up to 'plagued by embarrassing delays and long lines',

Now get off my lawn.

Don't however get off the lawn until after you finish mowing it!
