At the Polls

I went to vote right before work at a local Astoria school. The line was out the door – much longer than previous elections (though this is my first time voting there in a presidential election). But I was happy to see everything was well organized. All voters were directed to separate lines for their district and then separate lines for signing and voting. I felt so anxious as I waited, but I was happy looking around at all the people who came out to vote. When I got in that booth and pulled those levers (I love that we use levers!), I had a good feeling.
So brave those lines and vote! Remember “bad officials are elected by good people who don’t vote.”
