My daddy made me wake up at 6:30 AM just to vote. WHY?? I have no idea. Hes going to be voting at 7PM along with my mom, so I dunno why I had to go early. Whatever.. Anyways, It was my first time voting and I had the time of my life. We [my brother and I] just had to wait about 30 minutes in line. I'm a Democrat so voting was pretty simple, for the most part. There were times where you could vote for more than one person. That wasn't so bad because there would be two Democrat candidates so I would vote for both. But sometimes they didn't have a party written beneath their names. That was the fun part! For one of the offices you could vote for 3 people and I saw two people with the same last name. I thought "Aww thats so cute. Father and son." So, I voted for them. Another time one of the names sounded nice while the other reminded me of my Statistical Psychology professor, so I voted for the nice one. Another time I was reminded by my middle school crush! The only time I was stuck was for the "CLERK" of my township. There was only one name and he was a Republican!! I didn't know what to do. But then I saw the blank bubbles and I decided to vote for my dad. But then I changed my mind. I voted for myself! I am so, super excited. Sigh. I feel so powerful and in control. Anyways, while we were in line for the machine [thingy] everyone had to flip their ballot on the other side. But when it came to my turn she didn't ask me to do that. She just said you are all set. I was so confused and became stressed out. When I left the room, I told my brother but he said it was ok. He said you only had to flip your ballot when it didn't go through the first time. Phew. We were about to leave when I remembered that I had forgot to get an "I VOTED" sticker. So I went back and asked the old man for one and he said they were free. Yay. Voting is so fun and easy guys, go do it.
Yours for the sake of Peace, Sisterhood and Nationalism,
