Bristol Palin Didn't Vote for Joe Miller....Or Anyone Else

"Sorry, mom!"  Dancing with stars can be distracting, it seems:

Bristol Palin remembered her dance moves well enough to survive another round on "Dancing With the Stars," but she forgot to do her civic duty.

Sarah Palin's daughter admitted Wednesday she didn't vote in the midterm elections.

"I did not send in my absentee ballots to Alaska," Palin told Inside Edition. "I'm going to be in trouble. Sorry, mom!"

Sarah Palin's reputation as a kingmaker is on the line in her home state because she is personally backing Tea Party favorite Joe Miller for the U.S. Senate and he needs every vote he can get.

That race was still up in the air Wednesday, with write-in candidate Lisa Murkowski appearing to be leading Miller and Democrat Scott McAdams.

Asked if she wants her mom to run for president in 2012, Bristol said, "Of course I do."

"I know she is great, and she is great for our country," she said.

Might Bristol's failure to vote cost Miller the election?  Probably not, but either way, we likely won't know for weeks:

They would like to get the count started "earlier rather than later" and
could possibly begin counting as soon as next week -- instead of the
initially reported date of Nov. 18.

The count will take place in Juneau. They have 81,876 write-in ballots
that must be counted by hand so far and still have a few precincts that
have yet to report.

Thanks again, Lisa Murkowski!
