I was the third person in line this morning when the polls opened. I just love election days. I really do. It is a totally different experience for me now that I live in a small town than it used to be when I voted in a big city.
When I first moved here, I was baffled when I was given a paper ballot and a purple marker. Where were the computerized voting machines?! Now, I love the paper ballots. I love the fact that I mark my votes and place my ballot in a little sleeve and drop it in a big metal box stencilled "BALLOT BOX." It feels so much more real than just hitting a button on a machine.
I can't wait to see what happens tonight. I think the best part about this election year is that people are really talking about politics and getting excited about it. What a wonderful thing!
I am almost finished with MONSTERS OF TEMPLETON and I'm really enjoying it. I will try and post a review tomorrow. In the meantime, if you are having a primary election today, GO VOTE!!!
