Election Day Cuties

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.
