Here are the Election Day Cuties at our house. First is Rose #1, who had to borrow my I Voted sticker. She voted twice today - once at school, then again at the polls after I voted. She was very enthusiastic about marking her ballot.Election Day Cutie #2 is Rose #3! She voted too. She had a ballot at the Kids Voting booth and managed to eke out "Barack Obama." She selected the Libertarian candidate for Senate, however, lest you think she is brainwashed.
Election Day Cutie #3 is Rose #2, who enjoyed marking her Kids Voting ballot too. She LOVES to say the words "Barack Obama." I think it is the way it rolls off her tongue that she likes.
In all our polling place was very orderly. I thought for sure we would have a long wait, but we had no wait at all! It was great. I felt so proud to vote today. I was thinking a lot today about how voting is the great equalizer. As long as you are 18 years old and a citizen (right?) your vote counts as much as the next person's.
