Election 2008

I voted today.

The polling place was on a residential street, in someone’s garage.  Is that something that happens often?

In the past, the polling places around my home have been in the dayroom of apartment complexes, or at the gym of a local school.  This is the first time I’ve ever voted at someone’s house.  It feels weird – like perhaps they’ll be counting votes in the kitchen.

But it was a good venue.  A bit chilly ’cause I voted so early.  There was a line, but I didn’t wait longer than 10 minutes.  I spent the time reading Twitter reports (and updated my own voting experience to Twitter). 

So, have YOU voted yet?  If not, then you are not allowed to complain about any elected official or policy until the next voting cycle. 

That’s the rule!
