Today's confession: I got up on time for like the first time in a long while to vote before work. And there was a fairly huge line (for my little town):
The lady in front of me and I were talking about how great it was that so many people are coming out to vote today.
After voting I had a Dr.'s appt, and he too commented that it felt more like a presidential election. We both agreed that was fantastic.
I also stopped at Starbucks for a coffee. I was eavesdropping on the very young baristas' conversation. One guy was telling the other how important it was to vote today, and that he really needed to make sure he MADE the time to vote. The other was clearly not informed and had no idea why today was so important. The first guy did a fantastic job educating, and as I left, I told barista #2 to listen to his buddy.
So, I'm using my little corner of the interwebs to encourage you to make sure get to the polls today if you haven't already voted. Your voice matters.
