I Voted!

Today, I did something that I hope all Americans of voting age did–I voted in the Presidential Election.

I don’t discuss politics. I don’t figure I’m going to change anyone’s mind about what they believe regarding the candidates and the issues. But I do take the right and privilege to vote as a very important aspect of my responsibility as an American. Especially as I get older.

I waited until about 11:00 AM to vote because I hoped the lines would be shorter. After all, many people vote early before going to work, so the lines seem to be longer then.

I was right–the line was much shorter. In fact, I hit the polling place at a very good time. There was no line at all! I walked right in, sat right down, and completed the ballot. It reminded me of a song from the old days.

(Ooops! Song interlude. . .)

“Walk Right In” by the Rooftop Singers

I love voting, and I love music! And when it works out that I can combine them–I love it even more! 🙂
