Election Day

Well, I had to wait in line for about an hour but I’m finished.

I opted for the paper ballot over the electronic one.

    I was in line for about an hour and a half. Did the paper ballot that was then run thru a Scantron machine. I didn’t hear any of those “ka-chunk” noises you get when your answer is wrong – so not only do I think I voted correctly I think I aced it.

    I have to admit something I am a little embarrassed by. While I was standing in line the Republican running for our Senate shadow rep actually made me change my mind about voting for the incumbent Dem who got a DWI recently. So I voted for the Green party candidate instead. She seems like a sweet lady. And her platform was also really sweet. Got to love the positive vibes from the tree-hugger party.

    Waited about 10 minutes maybe less, line was unevenly dristributed by name, so the A-L line was out the door, there were 3-4 people in the M-Z line. Odd, but in my favor so who’s complaining…

    Used the old school lever machine, sounds like the guillotine.

    Henry’s sick today, so I schelpped him to the polls at 10:30. There were no lines, it was great! They didn’t give us the option of paper or computerized ballots. I just assumed it was going to be a computer touch screen, so when I got to my polling station I actually told the election official that the machine was missing. They had a good laugh at my expense.

    I can’t vote for obvious reasons and was telling someone today that I’ve only been able to vote once in my life – I think I was a freshman in college. I wish Ireland was a believer in absentee ballots but they only allow them for the military.

    I woke up early and walked through the alley to my local polling place. I waited about an hour, but it was interesting. There were people actually taking pictures with 4 generations. Only 1 Touchscreen, so I went for paper. Over-voted for a judge, no java.
