Get Blind Drunk and Pull the Lever

Early voting has started in several states - Like New Mexico, where a woman from Albuquerque got herself completely hammered before showing up to the election site. The woman was reportedly so disappointed in her choices for president that she actually passed out while voting. Be honest - there's a little bit of this woman in all of us. In case you're wondering, it's not illegal to be drunk while casting your vote in Albuquerque. It's not clear that she completed her ballot but officials have declared her vote will count. Democracy at it's finest.

Not to be outdone is the country of Guatemala where they actually have to ban the sale of alcohol prior to their presidential elections. Apparently being sober when you vote allows you to be constantly reminded that you voted for the guy in office that is driving the country into the ground. Of course, Guatemalans are good drinkers and there are reports that many people started stocking up on booze before the ban.
