Voting

gnomi and I voted this morning. Our polling place is right around the corner from us, and voting started at 7 AM. However, since we were already set to go at 6:40 AM, we decided to walk over then and wait out the twenty minutes.

It's a good thing we did, too. We were voters #17 and #18, and while we were waiting to vote, the line got longer and longer. By the time we left, at 7:11 AM, the line was down the block.

Good sign, in my opnion.

I'll be taking the Limoliner to New York City this afternoon to spend the week with my Mom, and I'm going to help her get to the polls this evening. So I'll be seeing my first polling place again, where I last voted back in 1994. It's going to feel rather odd.
