Voting Day

Voting day is definitely a big deal around here. We've been glued to MSNBC for the past 3 days, well at least 3 days, probably a lot more.

Fortunately, I was off of work today so I've been tuned in.

We went to vote this afternoon. Here in New York we still have the old fashioned lever booths, like you see on TV. It was hilarious because the people in front of us literally took 10 minutes, and there were only 3 things on the whole ballot. But oh well. It's still a cool experience to pull that lever.

I was kind of disappointed in our "I voted today" stickers. Just some words printed on some Avery labels, but I still wore it with pride.

We then headed to Starbucks to get our free coffee.


We're having people over tonight to watch the results to come in. We recently bought the School House Rock : Election Collection DVD and there was a vote tracker in it. So we've got it all set up on the wall to put our red and blue stickers on all the states.
So hopefully we will get an answer tonight and this doesn't drag on for very long. I hope you all took advantage of your right to vote and have a good evening watching the votes roll in.
