Election Day.

Good morning, it is Tuesday.

Election day is finally here. Tomorrow there will be no more political adds on TV. I enjoy toothpaste and auto adds far more than the standard political add. There was one ad against Gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi where he morphed into George Bush that was kind of cool. Also one of our favorite teachers, Ms. Hickey, was on a ad for a local named Geoff Simpson. But all these horrid ads about how if so and so wins, then you will have more sex offenders in your neighborhood stalking your children, or are just not appropriate for anyone.

Maren is voting as I type, I will vote on my lunch break. This evening we will have every TV on to a news channel to see who won what. If you are like us, and vote at a polling center in King County, enjoy yourself as this is the last time we get to vote in person. Starting next year all voting in our county will be by mail. Kind of like loosing the ability to meet your friends and family at the gate when they arrive at an airport, loosing the ability to vote at a polling center is kind of a bummer.

Preston is wearing his Barack and Roll shirt to school today.

See you tomorrow.

We had to wait an hour and a half in line to vote! I have never seen anything like it, and everyone was in a happy mood. Love, Susanna

I stood in line for 2 hours a few days ago - luckily it wasn't too hot - they were giving out water, and candy - no angry people. And Grandpa a few days before only stood in line for an hour.
Voting by mail!!! - that doesn't sound great. Yes, our tv's will be on news channels, and we'll be watching non stop.

In TX we have the option to early vote, and the local polling places don't end up with long lines. I think you should have the choice... it would be kind of weird to not even have the option to go vote in person!

In Oregon, we only had the option of voting by mail. It was really boring compared to today, when we got to stand in line for an hour and a half and talk to people about Hollywood in the 60s and 70s and get free Powerades - and then vote!
