If you’re one of the five people in the United States who isn’t aware today is election day, this is your reminder to go vote. If you are aware, go vote, too.
I don’t care who your candidate is, or what your beliefs are – and I’d prefer that you don’t tell me unless I ask you directly.
I do care that you exercise your voice by going to the polls, if you haven’t already participated in early voting, or mailed in an absentee ballot. Voting isn’t just a right, it’s a responsibility, an obligation, and while it does NOT give you any special tangible treats (except for a free cup of coffee at Starbucks, this morning), it does give you license to bitch later.
Have a lovely Tuesday.
Done! I got there at about 8:55 AM; there were no lines and lots of parking. I walked right in, got my ballot, walked right over to a non-curtained voting booth (hence no pictures) and voted my little heart out. As I submitted it, I looked to see what number my vote was…342 in the A-L section of my precinct. Woohoo!
