Writer's Block: Secret Ballot

It's hard to ignore the fact that today is Election Day in the U.S. If you went to the polls today, tell us what it was like. Long line? Free stickers? Hanging chads? We want the details.


In and out in about 5-10 minutes. Among other things, no one was in the Last names A-F line, which meant I got my ballot very quickly.

Then the silly nature of Springfield's ballots allows around 50 people to be voting at the same time at my precinct.

I also was prepared and knew who and what I was voting for or against. Only thing I forgot about was the silly State Constitutional amendment they're trying to pass. But even then, just reading it told me how to vote on it. (The amendment is to make English the official language of MO. While I understand the WHY, it doesn't change the fact it's already the law, both law and amendment are toothless and symbolic, and to me it would be like sticking an amendment in the constitution recognizing "Hang On, Sloopy" as the official rock song of the state of Ohio.)

So yeah. Back to bed since I'm working night shift.
