I voted!

I voted! It's such a wonderful experience. I've been voting at the same polling place for 20 years. For me, that's a long long time!

Our polling place is in a Town Hall in a small mountain town in the middle of nowhere. The building is an old building dating back to the California gold rush era, it was once a one room schoolhouse.

I have never seen a line there, but I always go in the mid morning time, which may have something to do with that. After I voted, I handed my ballot to an elderly woman who entered it in to the machine and then asked for a HUG! I said OF COURSE!

I watched my husband go do the same and she asked him for a HUG! She will be getting 4 years worth of hugs today....

Then we went to the room next door and had breakfast. There are photos all over the walls from all the years gone by, dating all the way back to the 1800's.

That's a long time back in California years.

This video is ADORABLE. You will laugh your head off no matter what your politics:


Happy Voting Day to All.

  1. hugs and then breakfast! I would be there everyday, not just voting. I posted 7 random things about myself with what I hope is a humorous voice. Thanks for the tag. Really!
