    Kathy, I was able to vote for Leia and R2, and got the email to use for confirmation a few minutes later. Very strange that it hasn't been working for you. Well, I'll go vote again to help make up for it - aparently you can vote once a day.

    I'll try again using a different browser. The only other thing I can think of is that for some reason our security software is getting in the way of things and my e-mail submission through their site is being blocked.

    So we know one is at 4th and Howard, one is at union square, the third is in the Presidio. So the big question is where is the fourth? Didn't you say SF got four Matt?

    I think it's by the CalTrain station. The address is on the frappr map that Kathy posted on pg. 2 of this thread. Lou, could you take a pic with it (with your SFFF shirt, of course) and put it on the map?

    Update!
    I went to the post office yesterday.

    I saw a USPS/SW poster displaying the stamps as well a 3PO&R2 mini-display for the sweepstakes to CIV.

    You can't escape.

    I managed to stumble across an R2 mailbox here in DC, but didn't have my camera so no photos yet. I also voted for the Leia stamp, and had no problems - I wonder why it isn't working for everyone?

    Yay, at least someone here could vote for Leia :) Whenever I have a computer glitch my primary suspect is our security software. Although, I think it is strange that it wouldn't allow an online form to process properly.

    Oh cool! Although, I'm really sorry they didn't post the names of all the members who participated in the unveiling that I submitted :( I just don't want anyone to think I omitted them. I didn't.

    Kathy, I should be getting the first part of our thank-you gifts from the USPS for participating in the R2 unveiling this week, or before the meeting. ;)
