Hey, Americans: GET OUT AND VOTE!
I just got back from exercising my right to vote. (I could've exercised my legs and walked the half mile to the polling place, but boy, that'd just be a lot of dang exercise first thing in the morning...) The polls opened at 6am and I arrived at 6:03. Big crowds - much bigger than usual. As someone who always votes in every primary and election and someone who has voted in the same polling place for the past 9 years, I was a little surprised to see the crowds that early. I mean, I usually just walk right in and vote! But, that is a GOOD THING and I'm hoping it continues...... I was number 16 for my district, and Hubby, who drove over there as soon as I got home, was number 46. There've been times when I've gone to vote midafternoon and been closer to 16 than 46 in the past, so I think that is a promising sign.
Anyhow, if you are an American and you are eligible to vote, PLEASE DO! If you need further encouragement, please check out my bloggy pal Smoochiefrog's post here about some delicious incentives for folks who vote today.
And, because it's my blog - GO OBAMA!
