I Voted!

I hauled myself down the block to the retirement community craft room and voted this morning. I took Eva with me and our ages together (I know she only adds 20 months) didn't even come close to the ages of the other people that were there voting. I guess the younger crowd (under 70) will show up later today. I did my civic duty and in the process had a lovely conversation with one of the poll workers.

Old lady working the poll: My! You've got a nice drivers license picture.

Me: Thank you! I actually wore makeup that day.

OLWTP: You'd be surprised how bad some people look in those whether they have on makeup or not.

Me: Yep.

OLWTP: I look at those all day and I've seen some doozies.

Me: I bet.

OLWTP: Okay, young lady. You go and do your duty now and vote.

Me: Thanks.

After I voted I took my ballot to the old man working the poll.

Old man working the poll: You sure were quick.

Me: I did my homework.

OMWTP: You young'uns can read those ballots without the magnifiers. I bet that helps.

Me: Yep. Have a great day.

OMWTP: Don't forget your sticker.

Me: I wouldn't dream of it.

OMWTP: And here's one for your cute baby.


There you have it. I voted and got complimented. What a great day. This week isn't sucking and that makes me happy.


  1. That is inspiring. This is the first year in a long time that I didn't vote. We could have done an out of state ballot for Lincoln.....but. I just wasn't in to it this year. I'm sorry; I hope our two votes wouldn't have changed Lincoln for the better, or control of the Senate. Let me know if it does. I'm watching CNN as we speak.

  2. I ended up voting for Mario and Emmitt. I hope they make it to the finals!

  3. Christy you always bring a smile to my face. Thanks.

  4. I took 3 kids to the voting place. It was a different experience. :-) I mean, I love my kids saying really loudly "Why are you voting for x?" "Is so and so still a member of the Church?" all the while Nathan is shaking the voting booth of a not-so-polite lady. And they were running out of stickers and so my kids couldn't have any! However, I'm glad I voted. There was a really tight local race here that was decided by 89 votes and mine counted!
