They arrived in the mail Thursday, the day after the last debate. I can vote!
I will need to do some studying of the Voters Pamphlet on a few of the issues, like judges and county charter amendments.
But no more studying is required for this one! I've had more than enough input, thank you very much.
We signed up for absentee ballots quite some years ago. We like this option because we can sit down with the voters guide and study, take our time, and not have to wait in lines. Four years ago, when we tried to elect John Kerry, we happened to be in New Orleans on Election Day. This year we will just make it back from Colorado. So it is also convenient for those of us who don't stay home or stay put like we're expected to.
I don't remember ever feeling this excited about getting a ballot. I hope and believe we will be making history with this election, and it is a precious right we have to be able to participate in that decision.
I can vote, NOW!
