Five Crazy Thoughts on Election Day
I voted this morning and that always causes me to feel a little crazy. I thought this morning would be a Transformation Tuesday post (stay tuned, it's coming) but I had to share my crazy thoughts about Election Day first!
- Even though I live in a small town (that may not be as small as I think), I should have researched where to vote first! I went to two locations, figured out that I am registered under an old-old address, but my license has an old address, but I finally found it – no line!!
- I don't have a particular party that I identify with (mostly because I'm a little crazy and can't make up my mind) but when I went through, I was pretty consistent (and no – I'm not telling you!).
- The last time I voted in a big election, I was in Austin and things were automated and I pushed buttons. This time it was pencils and I felt like I was in school again. And…there was no eraser!!
- I really should have researched a little more about the "other" voting options on the ballot. I found myself "guessing" and that is never a good idea.
- After I voted and I was sitting in my car, I had a panic moment that I colored in the wrong circles or did something wrong and then my vote wouldn't count and the world would come to an end and it would be all my fault! <– see, that's the crazy side of me!
All in all, it was a good experience and I'm glad I did it. I will still be to work on time and I don't have to worry about voting later when everyone else will be there. I was VERY sad that they didn't have any "I Voted" stickers, but oh well…
One final crazy thought – I had a moment of rebellion when I thought about writing in a couple of names, but then I couldn't think of anyone that would be a good name to submit besides my son (who my aunt thinks is going to be president someday anyways) but then I decided that I'm not quite ready for that much publicity and he can't drive yet so I would have to take him to the White House and to work everyday and that would just be a hassle so I just used the names that were already on the ballot.
