Voting Day

This morning I did something I have never done before. I went to vote early. I voted on my way to work. I will NEVER do this again.

There are two different precincts that vote at my polling place. I was bounced back and forth between the two precinct tables because they could not figure out which one I should have been voting at. When they finally figured that all out, it took about 5-10 minutes for me to check in and get my ballot. Did I mention that no one else was ahead of me? The FOUR ladies that were helping me were all confused. There were no booths available for me to vote privately in so I just sat on a chair with a clipboard next to the confused 4 and tried to vote in peace.

Voting today was WAY to stressful. I will never vote in the morning again. I will stick to the afternoon when the polling volunteers have figured out their system and I can come and do my civic duty in peace!

The up side of this misadventure is that you can stay home this evening and watch the election results. You don't have to go anywhere. You've voted!
