I voted before 8 am. The mother of one of my daughter's friends called me last night. She wanted to know if I could give her a ride to the polls. So, I picked her up and then we went and voted. Straight Dem ticket for both of us. My daughter (my older daughter who is 10) wanted to know if we needed to keep who we were voting for a secret. I told her that no, we don't have to, but some folks do. She wanted to know if George Bush would yell at me for not voting for him. I told her that even though he wants my vote, he will stand up for my rights to vote for whomever I deem appropriate. I said even though he wants to be President he knows that we all get to make our own choices for President and he would just be glad to know that I took the time to vote.

We fill out paper ballots with a marker, completing an arrow. Then they go into the machine. If there is a problem with the ballot, it will spit it back out, if not, it gets accepted into the box. Mine was accepted as vote #200 for the day (and the polls were only open an hour at that point). I had NO line and walked right in. Of course, the village I live in is just over 6000 people, so there are not too many of us to vote!

I just came back from voting. Like Misty, I'm down with a stomach bug today (although not severe, hope you feel better soon, Misty) so I tried to time it so that I could get out of there fast if I needed. I was a little spacey driving so I triple checked to make sure I marked off the right oval, uttered a short but fervent prayer, and came home. DD was so sweet this morning. I was laying on my bed with very bad stomach cramps and she offered to rub my tummy. I refused, as politely as I could, and solicitously she said "I really hope Kerry wins, Mommy, because I think that would help you feel better." Kids are so funny! I told her it would help a LOT ;)

forgot to add it was very quiet and smooth sailing at my polling place.

Thanks, I just wanted to come back and add on to my post because this just really warms my heart and makes me feel better about life in general.
