It Was Better Before, Before They Voted For Whatsisname
I voted this morning on the way back home after dropping Girlie Girl and Handsome Lad off at their respective schools. My polling place is in the cafeteria of the continuation High School. It wasn't at all crowded when I stopped in. After they triple checked me in, I got my ballot and went to my Ink-a-Vote booth. There were...like, 14 Propositions on the ballot, plus some judgeships, plus Congress, and of course, the Big Show. So I had my cheat sheet and blazed right through that sucker. I had to gently awaken the elderly gentleman minding the ballot box. Poor old fellow...anyway, he was able to show me just how to insert my ballot, he looked at his screen and assured me it had been successfully entered, and handed me my sticker from the tip of his finger to mine. Right on. Now it's all over for me but the waiting. I do have a few things on the ballot that I felt pretty strongly about...well, we'll see. I hope that you all rocked the vote too.
