I Voted!

Posted by Nanc

Yup. I voted today. As did Matt. (Or at least he was right behind me in line, I guess I didn’t really see him mark anything on the ballot. But I’m pretty sure…) Besides, we were up late last night researching our votes and making personal cheat sheets, er… notes to take with us. Damn, we’d make Jon Stewart proud!

I am a little disappointed that we don’t get “I Voted Today” stickers anymore. It is such a little thing, but brings so much joy.

Oh, and the ballots here are a bit different – you use a fine point Sharpie® (provided) to fill in the circle for whom or what you’re voting. (And no, you don’t get to keep the Sharpie®.) V. similar to scantron tests from school days, but with the Sharpie® and not a #2 pencil. (Can you tell I have a Sharpie® fixation?) When completed, you send the form through an electronic ballot box, which verifies – what? I don’t know. But I do know that this morning Matt was voter #98 and I was #100. Yay!

    Yeah!! I was voter #31! Was I the only one that got an eerie vibe off the ‘scanner’ that looked like a paper shredder?!?!!?

    Dangit, I didn’t even make note of what number I was . . . and I’m bummed not to get an “I voted” sticker, too — was planning on wearing it proudly today at work.

    Yeah! I was voter number 41 and Mike was 37! We were both seriously bummed by not getting the “I Voted Today!” stickers too!

    Huh – number 37, you say? How random.
