Democratic Process

I love fulfilling my civic duty.

What a rush.  My polling location is right across the street from work.  So this morning, I pull on my Sunday best, grab my id, a bill, and registration confirmation.  I wasn’t going to get turned away!

I get there around 8 expecting to have to wait in line, but I just walk right in and vote.

I did my civic duty with pride.

One thought on “Democratic Process

  1. Can I just tell you how much I love “America” by Simon & Garfunkel. It probably comes as no surprise to you, really, but I absolutely adore it.
