I voted. Did you?

Today I joined the masses of my fellow Americans in doing our patriotic duty: To vote, and take part in our democracy.

I was surprised to hear that the polls closed 3 hours ago in Ohio and people are still waiting in line to vote! I parked, walked in, voted, walked out. No line. Come to think of it, I’ve never had to wait in line any time I’ve ever voted. Lucky, I guess. I was somewhat dissapointed that I didn’t get to use the cool touch-screen eletronic voting machines, but then again, there’s something about those voting cards and filling in the squares in booths that feels more “authentic”, for lack of a better word.

I got through the ballot really quickly because this time I had a cheat sheet. Chesney and I did our homework the night before and went through all the props.

Glad to be part of this year’s election.
