The countdown starts

I just got back from voting and I am just giddy with joy over it. It may be a bit strange, but I approach voting with the same excitement others have for a fun day at the carnival. While at the polling area I had to refrain from breaking out into a song and jig. I love voting. The power that we the people have is amazing.

There was a woman in front of me, a late 20's hispanic, casting her vote for the first time. She is the voter that Kerry and Bush have been chasing (sorry Bush, she voted for Kerry). The "get out and vote" campaign is working. Our polls were full, and people were waiting patiently. Everyone wants to be able to say, "yes, I voted, it counted, I made a difference."

Yay democracy!

If you have problems at any of your polling places, call 1-866-myvote1

Four years ago..Hubby and I got our absentee ballets 2 weeks after the election. (CA.) This year...we canceled each other out. But...at least it was counted.
