Voting.....GO VOTE!!!!!

Voting is much different here in TX. We dropped the boys off at school and there was voting in the gym. So we got in line. I asked the election official if we were in the right place and we were not. He told us where to go, and off we went. We got to the correct polling location, got in line, and were done voting within 5 minutes. There were a couple of differences. The first one being that it is not done on a computer, but on a scan tron type of ballot. The second is that here you have a voter registration card and they check that and don't even ask to see your ID. The third difference is that when you are done, they don't give you that cute little sticker that says "I voted!" I was really looking forward to the sticker. Oh well, we voted and cant wait to see who the winner is. If you don't vote, you don't get to complain when things don't work out the way you would like them to! Have you voted yet?

I worked the polls this year. What an experience! The people just kept coming and coming. The day started at 5:30am and ended at 10:30pm. I can't wait until next time!!! I have a great time. And we do things the same way here as there except we give the "stickers!" LOL
