Hey Everyone,

So tomorrow is the mid-term elections and there are a lot of close races in many states!

I want to vote, I really do, but seriously my precinct has made it so difficult. My polling place is a high school, where they are having school today, so you cannot park there (there are signs posted everywhere saying "no voter parking", And there is no street parking around there at all. Which is not a huge deal, I could walk there from my house, but I don't have a babysitter so I have to take James, which is kind of pain, by the time we get there I know he'll be tired of the stroller and all kinds of grumpy. Also, and know this is silly, but there are creepy high school kids all over the place, and no signs telling you where to go (I know this, because I just went there in my car and tried to figure it out...), so if I do go, I have to wander around like a weirdo with my one year old, my stroller, and my giant preggo belly. I don't know, I'm just not feeling it. I really wish I would have taken advantage of early voting on Saturday...

I did vote yesterday, but I wish I would've checked out your links beforehand! Last year I did the early voting and it was great not to have to wait in line on Election Day. We got a card in the mail about it this year but I kept putting it off and by the time I remembered it, there was only one day left and I had no one to watch Selin. My first client on my route ended up canceling yesterday so I dropped Selin off at the sitter and then went to our library to vote with all the OF's, lol.

Grace - I agree with Adrienne on the closing school thing. All the schools in my area that are used as polling places are closed on Election Day, even high schools. I would definitely talk to someone about it, if for nothing else to make better signage and parking options!
