I voted in the Primary Election today. Took my camera with me. It was hot & humid. But I walked up the hill to my polling place and voted in the three races that I knew something about. Left the other ones blank. I refuse to vote based on the name alone. In the November General Election, I will vote in every race. First based on knowledge and then based on party and then based on gender (We need more women in elected office). But if there are two women (or men) both Democrats and I’m not informed enough to make an intelligent decision, I do the responsible thing in those cases, I hold my nose and just pick the second name. YOUR ALPHABETIC SUPERIORITY ENDS TODAY.
Here are the pictures.
Once inside I took one picture of the room and was told I couldn’t take pictures. They had replaced the electronic machines of the General Election with the lever machines of the past. I asked why and they said they only use the computers for the General. I like the big, physical, lever machines better. But what do I know. I wanted to show you guys the new booths, the ones with no privacy. I think they make it harder for people to vote their conscience, with a controlling and dominant spouse able to look at your picks in these open booths. You can’t tell me that wasn’t the point. Secret ballot my ass.
Here’s the cropped & blurry picture… they can all bite me.
Enough of that. I took some more pics on my way to the store for celebratory ice cream.
That’s all I have this time out.
Gonna have ice cream (butter pecan)
See you guys next week.
