How the other half votes, from TPM Reader DP:

I was directly behind RNC Chair Ken Mehlman this morning when I came out to vote. He lives up my street on Capitol Hill. When a poll worker asked whether he wanted to vote on an electronic machine or use a traditional pencil and paper ballot, he chose the latter.

So Mehlman won’t drink from the poison cup? Actually, DP says the line for paper ballots was much shorter than for the electronic machines.
