Pardon the interruption...

... but please, if you're an American, vote.

If you've already voted, thank you!

I voted today and hope every American has as well.

Done! I always feel so good when I step out of the voting booth :)

David said...

Can I reiterate - if you're American, please vote!

And I'm British, so can't. It's that important.

And for those of you in Florida, that means punching the little tab NEXT TO the name of the person you want to win.

Thank you!

I voted just to get the free Starbucks...

Just kidding.

But seriously, what's better than helping shape your country's future AND getting the daily fix of caffeine?

I just got home from working a polling place all day. Exhausted, but it's a really good kind of tired!

We processed a total of 770 ballots, a record for our crew. It was wonderful to see all the new AND old voters, people who hadn't voted in decades, and parents with their young adult children! One fellow drove home from Chicago to vote in his home poll in L.A.!

We were swamped all day, but nearly everyone was extremely patient and polite. I was very happy when we got done closing the polling precinct (counting up and pre-processing of ballots) within 1.5 hours after closing! Phew!

Thanks America! We can all work together and help each other, it's a great thing!

I voted yesterday in Miami, Florida. I was so excited when one of the poll workers spoke to me in English!

Keep politics out of a humour blog. Not all of us support the ridiculous shell game of democracy.

Stuart said...

Francois - It's her blog. She can post anything she pleases, and the spirit of democracy allows you to voice your opinion. Ironic, non?

I went to vote and handed the worker my voter registration card and she said "That's it. No need to get your ID out. It's hard to get one of these."

Maybe she's right (supposedly, they're supposed to check the registrations against the INS database and DMV) but still, without my ID, I could have had my Russian or Polish friends go and vote for the fun of it. Or if the person had deceased, they could have also voted.

Yes, it was fun and all but I wonder if voting is becoming more like a soccer game where we cheer for our team and about as thought provoking.
