I discovered last month that I wasn't registered to vote.

I've lived in the same home and have voted regularly, for midterms and the presidential election since 1970. I have received my new registration card so I'm OK. I hope everyone has checked to ensure that they can still vote this year.

1. When you got it corrected, what did they say?

And if you can, what state do you live in?

2. There was nothing to be said, I renewed online.

Just had to answer the questions and made sure that they coincided with what they had on file, like my driver's license. That was it.

4. BTW: I'm in Illinois.

I found it strange that it would happen in Illinois, a Democratic state for the most part.

6. Most of Illinois has been taken over by Fox News.

When I lived in many small towns, from Southern Illinois to Northern Illinois, Fox News was blaring everywhere I went, in banks, restaurants, and doctors' offices. And I watched these areas get redder and redder over the last few decades. I was a little shocked at first. Then it made more sense, as I realized how lily-white and culturally isolated and racially paranoid most of these towns were. And Fox News was playing that for all it was worth. Now the governor is a rich Republicon.

7. Well, I'm hoping that the Republican Governor will be voted out...

then, we will have a rich Democratic Governor. Hopefully, Pritzker will be a little better.
