I am a citizen of the United States.
I am a proud American.
Today, I exercised what I consider the best
reason for being a citizen of
this great nation.
I voted on my way home from work at a church
near the school.
The ladies working the voting location were very
sweet and desperate for someone to come
exercise their right to vote.
So desperate that they called the school earlier in the day and
requested that our very talented and civic minded
office manager send out a school wide IM letting us know that
we could come and vote no matter our voting
precinct, since it was early voting.
Saaaweeet, thought I. If I vote here, I won't have to
drive all the way into town after work and vote
at the courthouse. Yes!
I got to use the computer, no worries about hanging chads here.
Not that I've ever voted using the punch card format, just
the old fashioned paper and number two pencil.
After voting, just like I do in my class, I got a reward for
getting things done early.
Snack size Butterfingers.
Have you voted yet?
Don't forget to, it's the American thing to do.
