    I have a form to fill out on the comfort of my home, not online

    I got mine in the mail yesterday and I went online this morning and completed it. It asked if the address was correct first and then simply asked for name, DOB and nationally of the residents. That is all it asked and took about 5 minutes to complete.

    It doesn't "have to be done online" If you do not they will send you a form.

    They ask what is the related to person #1, OK Wife female
    Then the next question is what is persons "sex"

    DUH I just answered female??

    I filled out my online form yesterday and it meets the criteria of typical committee think. They are going to have a big problem because of one of the questions: only 2 genders specified. Male or Female. Uh, obviously they haven't kept up.

    Not very intrusive. Still bothered by the failure to have to declare if we're citizens of the United States of America or from elsewhere. Thank you democrats for the omission of that question. Wouldn't want to hamper your voter base.

    Oh, don't worry about what language is required. They offer 13 different languages. However, if you're German, Greek, Italian or one of the many dozens of other languages spoken in America, you're out of luck.

    Electronic filing? Look at it this way. Very environmentally friendly. Instead of killing trees for this effort, you're killing electrons. Supposedly will save money......however, we do know better.

    I did mine during a commercial break from a movie I was watching. Agree that all the race question intricacies are crazy and irrelevant. I asked a couple of question of my own at the bottom of the page: " If we're so worried about racism, why does the government keep asking about it? Can't we just be people?" and in all caps, "WHY NO QUESTION ABOUT CITIZENSHIP?". Haven't seen any black helicopters yet, but they should be here soon.
