Woo Hoo, only two more days before the sentiment of today’s editorial cartoon is over. I can safely say that I am not the only one with voter fatigue. The bad news is that whomever does win, we will still be hearing this sentiment from the other side for four years.
Usually I am a purist and like to wait until election day to cast my vote. You never know what scandal might come out the day before the election that will change your vote. Well for those of us who don’t vote a straight ticket. Last minute I have to go out of town on election day so I had to opt for in person early voting.
You would think that with Ohio being a battleground state, there would be more than one option in my county to early vote. Nope. One place, the Board of Elections downtown. Originally I was going to go on Saturday but then I heard that Will.I.Am and Vivica A Fox were going to be down there and I knew that the lines would be way too long because gawkers want to gawk. Instead I went on Friday. Not much better choice.
This was the line. Well the line once I turned the corner. There were just as many people around the building before I got to this point. From the back of the line to the door was 35 minutes. From the door, up the steps and to the front of the line was another 35 minutes. Time to vote: 5 minutes. So I did my civic duty in 1 hour and 15 minutes. I hope you will make a minimal effort to go vote.
