So, we decided that the best line avoidance policy this morning was to roll out of bed and be in line when the polls opened. I'd never been to the polls as they were opening, so I wasn't sure what to expect, and verily, there was a line snaking down the sidewalk. We were in line at 6:15 and out by 7:00, which is not bad for this year, me thinks.
I voted for Obama and against Libby Dole, and for Democrats in general, as well as 3 of the 4 bond issues. I didn't vote a straight ticket - not only had I been reading horror stories online about straight tickets getting flipped, I know someone it happened to. There was also a bit of satisfaction for every button I pressed that doesn't come with voting a straight ticket, and that I hadn't anticipated.
Now I need to get a shower and get dressed and fed, and then head out, because I'm canvassing at for Obama at 9.
