We Voted (#88)
Because Alex's voter registration didn't kick in until after early voting had closed, we had to wait until the day of to cast our ballots in the election. We arrived at our polling place--the elementary school by our house--at 7 a.m. sharp, and after waiting in line about 30 minutes, signed in and dialed in our votes!
We watched all the debates, and all the Saturday Night Live skits, so we felt like we were well informed on the issues at hand. (I even researched the different propositions that were up for voting, only to realize in the booth that they were all Austin propositions and weren't on the ballot in Pflugerville. Oh well!)
I was so excited for Alex--from Little Communist to active participant in the Democratic process! Although now he feels like he's personally vested in the outcome and will be so mad if his guy doesn't win!
I hope you all took part. What a great day to be an American. :-)
