I got up at the very early hour of 4:37 this morning and David and Aaron followed shortly thereafter.  Sarah was very confused about why we were all up at that hour, because usually she has the downstairs to herself while she gets ready for school.  I reminded her that we were all going to get to the polls before they opened so we could vote first thing.  She was still rather put out that she couldn't vote, but she wished us well as we piled into the car and trotted off.  The polling place was our local library - first time I haven't voted in a school - with only 2 machines, which seemed a little inadequate.  There were about 30 people there waiting but once the clock hit 6 AM we were moved into 2 lines - those of us who lived north of Merrick Road and those (lucky dogs) who lived south of Merrick Road, like us.  

Books were signed, levers were pulled and we were in and out of there in about 20 minutes.  Not bad.  Aaron trudged off towards home and David and I went over to the diner at the train station where we have breakfast every morning before taking the train into NYC.  We were able to hang out for about an hour.  We had the self-satisfied glow of people who have done their civic duty and feel good about it.

My only quibble is that they didn't give out "I Voted!" stickers.  I really wanted a sticker.

So, have YOU voted yet? 

If not, WHY NOT?*


*My non-US friends exempted, of course.  And folks like the lovely [personal profile] bibliovixen who were lucky enough to have early voting.

Get out tomorrow and VOTE!!!  Ok, so y'all know where I stand on this issue.  I'm holding my breath, keeping my fingers crossed and not counting my election until all the chickens have come home to roost BUT - and this is a BIG BUT folks - NONE of the debating, arguing, issues or anything else makes a damn bit of difference if you don't get your ass to the polls and vote!

This is the most exciting election of my lifetime and I am thrilled that my son is able to vote tomorrow.  My daughter is very angry that she is 1 year and 2 weeks too young to vote, but she will be there in spirit.

I hope this is the biggest voter turnout in history!!

This is very good news: new Quinnipiac poll.

I am cautiously optimistic.  And I need a Barak Obama icon.  Like now.
