Exercising My Franchise

Tuesday, October 14, 2008
My official ballot arrived while I was out visiting the Mechanicky Gal. As soon as I get my work caught up from my mini-vacation, I'll be filling it out.

I decided to vote via mail this election, as I don't want to mess with early voting, and the polls on election day will likely be crowded and polarized. Given that I'm a poll worker again, I'll have enough on my plate without trying to cast my own ballot.

In fact, I have poll worker training again tonight.

While researching the candidates and the issues gives me high blood pressure, the risk of aneurysm is worth it for me to be able to responsibly exercise my franchise.

Go, America.

You go, girl!

But hey, that gives me a great idea. We could combine polling stations with gyms. That way you could get a full person workout.

Yay voting!

('Cause that means it's almost over!)
