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!
