  1. James Pearce says:

    Aren’t you a little short for an evil cyborg Jedi?

  2. OzarkHillbilly says:

    This Hijab thing has gotten out of control.

  3. OzarkHillbilly says:

    No, you have to have photo ID issued by the state in order to vote. Imperial ID won’t work.

  4. John Burgess says:

    “I’m sorry, sir, but without proper identification, you can only vote provisionally.”

  5. “The ability to deny my right to vote is insignificant compared to the power of The Force.”

  6. “I find your lack of cooperation disturbing.”

  7. “I told Palpatine perestroika and glasnost were a mistake. He didn’t listen.”

  8. rodney dill says:

    “Yes, I hand out the ballots… but in your case I don’t give a sith.”

  9. Moosebreath says:

    The Farce is strong in this one.

  10. Paul Hooson says:

    The characters from Roger Corman’s “BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS” are on their way….They couldn’t decide which of the facets of Nestor was driving the car pool minivan…

  11. Paul Hooson says:

    Voting Registrar: “Place of residence?”

    Darth Vader: “Death Star..”

    Voting Registrar: “You have the wrong polling booth then…”

  12. Rick Almeida says:

    I find your lack of faith in the democratic process disturbing.

  13. rodney dill says:

    “…and we’re obtaining the best Interstellar legal counsel available, to fight this voter suppression, from the offices of Crane, Poole, and Schmidt.”

  14. Paul Hooson says:

    Another example of racial discrimination at the polls. Dark Jedi Knights are being turned away from voting for reasons such as wearing Chevrolet grilles for a face…

  15. Paul Hooson says:

    He’s black. He talks like James Earl Jones….I say they won’t let him vote this year…

  16. Paul Hooson says:

    “Sir, you need to park your Cadillac in the parking lot…”

  17. Paul Hooson says:

    “He owns a huge death star. Has tons of underpaid and exploited employees, with poor working conditions…..Odds are he’s not a Democrat.”

  18. Paul Hooson says:

    “Boy, that Mark Udall’s campaign has gotten pretty sad and weird…”

  19. Paul Hooson says:

    “I’m sorry Senator McConnell but your attempt to be cool and appeal to young voters just isn’t working…”

  20. Paul Hooson says:

    “I bet he has a donk death star parked outside…”

  21. Paul Hooson says:

    “Luke, I’m your voter….”

  22. Paul Hooson says:

    “This Chevrolet grille dental work is killing me…”

  23. “He’s more political machine now than man. Twisted and evil.”

  24. Guarneri says:

    Dude says he’s a single issue voter. Something about an EPA problem where he grew up……

  25. It looks like my attempts to comment with a new e-mail address resulted in the comments going to the spam filter. Can that be updated?

  26. Paul Hooson says:

    “30 years old. Single. And first time out of his mom’s basement voting….”

  27. Guarneri says:

    I know, I know. But exactly when did we in Illinois NOT let a self claimed Democrat vote?

  28. Paul Hooson says:

    “Ok, we’ll let you vote this time….But, don’t try to steal the election. I heard on the news that the last time you were in court, you took the stand….”

  29. Paul Hooson says:

    “Wow, now that former Mayor Bloomberg has really gone crazy….”

  30. Paul Hooson says:

    Guess which crazy person is a Doug Ford voter in today’s Toronto mayor election?

  31. Guarneri says:

    I know you take your poll judge responsibilities seriously, but the dudes getting pissed off, and if you saw the guys ride…..so please, let’m vote.

  32. Paul Hooson says:

    Exit poll trackers for CBS don’t know how to classify this voter…

  33. Guarneri says:

    Listen, tough guy, YOU tell he can’t vote.

  34. Paul Hooson says:

    “You’re not taking any chances with getting ebola in public places, are you?”

  35. Guarneri says:

    Hi, sweetie. Can I get your number? I’m soft and nice on the inside.

  36. Paul Hooson says:

    Upon exiting the polling place, a CNN exit poller asks him, “How would you classify your religion? Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Jedi, other?”

  37. Paul Hooson says:

    Surprised to see him vote today. Today’s a big Jedish holiday….

  38. Paul Hooson says:

    Some people just look a little too Jedish….

  39. Paul Hooson says:

    “Must be a big Jedish neighborhood around here?”

  40. Paul Hooson says:

    Turns out his son is only half Jedish….His wife is a gentile….

  41. Rodney Dill says:

    @Stormy Dragon: Not sure if its permanent, but I released the comment.

  42. Paul Hooson says:

    “Wow, we sure picked him wrong. He looked Jedish, but it turns out he’s a Christian Scientist….”

  43. rodney dill says:

    @Paul Hooson: C’mon… admit it… You wish you had a motorcycle helmet just like that.

  44. al-Ameda says:

    “Yes, I do not have a life.”

  45. rodney dill says:

    Vader: “What do I have that is dark, round and hard that Leia rode on?
    Poll Worker: “The Deathstar.”
    Vader (to himself): “Dang… another ones heard it before.”

  46. Paul Hooson says:

    “I’m sorry sir, but Evil Jedi Dictator isn’t a political party….You’ll have with the shorter independent ballot….”

  47. Paul Hooson says:

    @rodney dill: I have a Red Chinese Mig fighter pilot one I wear….Being Jewish, I’m not too cool on those Nazi helmets, and the Chinese like capitalism and money, so they’re half ways there with me. Like a long lost brother…

  48. Paul Hooson says:

    He talks like James Earl Jones. He’s black. Odds are there’s a big Cadillac parked outside that belongs to someone…

  49. Paul Hooson says:

    It’s been a while since the last STAR WARS movie….Odds are he ends up on DANCING WITH THE STARS soon…

  50. Paul Hooson says:

    I heard they refused him the opportunity to vote. He said, “Ok”, and left….Moments later the polling place was just a smoldering crater….

  51. Paul Hooson says:

    Everyday is Halloween for guys that live in mom’s basement….

  52. @Rodney Dill:

  63. Tillman says:

    “You wouldn’t think it looking over my platform, but I’m a huge proponent of greater OSHA funding.”

  64. Tillman says:

    Well, I looked at the state of elections today, and I thought to myself, “Why vote for the lesser evil?”

  65. Tillman says:

    “Don’t be too proud of this parliamentary agenda you’ve obstructed. The ability to filibuster a motion to proceed to debate is insignificant next to the power of the Force.”

  66. Paul Hooson says:

    Wow! Since he went bankrupt and that death star got foreclosed, he sure had to scale back his abilities to dominate others….

  67. “What do you mean Ron Paul isn’t on the ballot?”

  68. “For the millionth time, I am not Dick Cheney!”

  79. Pinky says:

    “I just can’t decide. ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ had better action, but Episode 3 had such a happy ending.”

    If this is Mass. then I am registered to vote as Annikin Skywalker. but if this NY then I’m registered as Darth Vader..

  81. charles austin says:

    Eddie Vedder, huh. Sign here.

  82. In an ironic intergalactic twist of fate, Darth Vader (author of *Imperial Senate Bill 1070) was asked to show proof of his identity, before being allowed to vote. However, only able to provide a Naboo low orbit planetary trainee pilot license under the name of Anakin Skywalker and issued retroactively by the then new but not yet (or ever) officially recognized Trade Federation post occupational provisional forces government, he was turned away at the polls.
