in reply to For whom would you vote, if you were an American?

So if you are an American, you're not allowed to vote on this poll?

    $am_american = 1; #pretend we're american, even if we aren't if ($am_american) { who_vote(@candidate); }
    Clear it up for you? ;-)

      Sorry, I was thinking:

      if(! $am_american) { who_vote(@candidate); }

        Be your own disciple, fan the sparks of will
        For all of us waiting, your kingdom will come

      Shouldn't that be:

      { local $am_american = 1; #pretend we're american, even if we aren't if ($am_american) { who_vote(@candidate); } }
      Otherwise this code leaks citezenship. Or causes identity confusion; in any case, it looks like a bug.
        I note that there is no return value from who_vote()... intentional?

    You get to fill out a provisional ballot. If it's a close race Perl Monks will summon a legal team to drag it out for three more weeks.

    No, you're not. Only citizens of democratic countries are allowed to vote. So I wonder just how many Swiss and German monks we have ...
