Election

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

It was a mess when I went to vote today. I was there at opening of the polls and there was already lines (yes, plural). As more then one precinct votes there, they wouldn't let you in until you stood in a line and they checked your name against a master list. Next, there was a line to show ID and sign in at the precint table. I picked up my ballot and stood in another line to wait for a place to officially fill it out. The fourth (and fortunately final) line was turning in the ballot so it could be scanned. Overall process took about an hour. It was well worth it though as voting is so important.

    I was lucky; we vote at a small place, so no long lines. Took me about 15 min. My son in Baltimore was in line over 2 hours, and I've heard from other friends around the country who were in very long lines. You are right, it's worth it just to exercise our right to vote!

    Voting here in the UK is normally much easier than that. Generally, takes around ten minutes. Which begs the question, why is there such so called 'apathy' in the UK regarding voting? Anyway, hats off to you and your fellow Americans who take the time and trouble to cast your vote.
