Germany, one of the largest democracies in the world, and a very technologically advanced country, goes to the polls today for their national elections.

How are they voting?

On a Saturday.

By dropping little pieces of paper into boxes.

There's a lesson to be had there, America. Voting doesn't have to be hard.

I have just been informed that Germany actually votes on a Sunday, which is even more better.

Es tut mir leid! Sontag. Sontag Sontag Sontag.

@mdm *Sunday

also: lots of people who have their life together, have already voted by Postal Vote
(which, again is paper)

@meena Even better! My country has Postal vote, but it's quickly being changed to be so restricted, nobody will use it. :/

@zeitverschreib @meena What's weird is that I _knew_ this was happening today, which is a Sunday, but my American brain automatically replaced it with a "Saturday," because the idea of "voting on Sunday" in the US is something we've been told for years is _impossible_.
