Early Voting

Early voting opened in Texas today, so I voted.  I can now sit back, relax, and see how things turn out.  The line inside the building (the local branch library) was as long as the line outside.  I was told that the poll workers were shorthanded, not a good thing for opening day.  But I was patient.  My civic duty is done for the day.

See, even Texas has early voting. But does New York? Nooooooooooo.

That sucks.

Early voting starts here tomorrow and runs through November 1. I won't try to go tomorrow because the line will be horrendous, but I'll definitely vote one day this week.

I vote by absentee ballot. I don't know if they have early voting here in Michigan.

My son and my wife did the early voting deal here in Plano at the library this morning and it took about ten minutes they say.

After renewing my drivers license tomorrow morning as it expires next month and they won't let me do it online, I hope to go vote. It depends on how things go at Texas DPS and how much pain I am in.

First day in Seymour, and the voting booths were empty, except for my wife and me. But then Seymour has under 3,000 population, so there is never much of a line. They did ask for our picture ID. Ginger told them it was the first time since she had been carded for beer. The lady got a kick out of it, but the sour-faced man didn't bat an eye (LOL)

It's all vote by mail here in Oregon, but there are voting boxes to put ballot envelopes into at all the libraries. I haven't quite finished sussing out the propositions, but will finish my ballot today or tomorrow and take it to the library.

DL renewed and then I voted. No wait time at all.
