The Absentee Ballots

I'm back for five minutes to show my face and then shove it back into my textbook.

Obama. Wow. {Late but better than never}

Before elections my dad came to visit us and he brought some absentee ballots for my mom and me. My other sister isn't registered so she couldn't vote since she turned 18 after we moved here. Anyways, I was like, "Yay!! I never seen an absentee ballot before!!" lame. But I was pretty bummed that I wouldn't be in America during the elections so you can't blame me. Even my mom who voted only once before was going to vote this time.

A few days before my dad left my mom and I decided to fill in the ballots. They were sitting on the computer table all nice and clean and ready to be filled in. Or so we thought. As I came closer I noticed a bunch of colors on it.

Markers.

My 5 year-old-sister colored all over the ballots.
And that is how and why I missed out on being part of history. Boo.
