exercising my right

Jeremie and I waited in line at our polling place for an hour and twenty minutes this morning and everything in me says the time was absolutely worth it. I think voting is extremely important. Every time I hear people talk about how their vote doesn’t matter I die a little inside.

The reason the lines were so long in Stamford was that they put 10 questions on the ballot (city stuff) and most people had not seen the questions before they stepped in the polls. Consequently, people took much longer to vote than they usually do because they had to read those darned questions. Ah well.

If you haven’t gone to vote yet, grab a cup of coffee and go get in line. You’ll get a sticker.
