mail in ballots are a nice "take home exam."
or better yet, do like i did: stop by the courthouse, pick up a mail-in ballot, take it home, study there, fill out the ballot, and turn it back in to the courthouse. worked like a charm for me. but then again, i live and work about 6 and 2 blocks, respectively, from the larimer county courthouse, so picking up the ballot wasn't hard.
By the waterside I will lay my head.
Listen to the river sing sweet songs to rock my soul.
