I Did My Duty...

Mom and I took the babies to vote yesterday. It was relatively painless and took all of 45 minutes. AND we all got nifty stickers! Much better than in years past.

The last presidential election I think that we waited for roughly 4 hours to vote; got home and they had already called the winner for NC! Made me so hoppin mad!

Last year, I went out to vote. COLD! Pregnant, toting a 9 month old baby and a 4 year old with a broken leg. Locked Amelia IN the car and had to wait to be rescued some 30 minutes later.

So yeah, this year was MUCH better.

I believe that Ken and I were in line with you during the last election..... I recollect seeing you there.
yeah - that was not a good thing -- standing in line so long and seeing that my vote didn't matter.

it is not so much a duty as it is a right and privilege.....

I wonder who would win the Presidential race if all voters were required to take care of three kids at the polling center and wait on line for an hour?

LOL I kinda wish I had thought of voting absentee, because the nuts come out of the woodwork on voting day. I think they bus them in or something. :p
