I just got back from voting which begs the questions...have you done your civic duty today?
Here are a few observations:
1. I was voter number 275. (We use a scantron machine and it records what your ballot number is which is kind of nifty.)
2. There was a first-time voter at my precinct today. I could tell because she went to the wrong polling place and they had to send her to the right one.
3. While the people at my polling place were still predominantly elderly, I saw a few people my age voting (a first in the 9 years I have been voting at this polling place).
4. There was a steady stream of voters and I had to wait for a polling booth (another first).
So, if you haven't voted today, please head out to the polls and vote. If you live in a large city or precinct there may be long lines so take a book or some knitting to keep you occupied while you wait. Oh, and don't forget to say thanks to your poll workers!
