“There is a heavy responsibility on everyone, man or woman, who has the right to vote.” Pope Pius XII, of happy memory

I fulfilled my civic and moral duty today on my lunch break.  While I have some small objections with early voting, I have to admit- it’s convenient!

In the past, was there a lever of some sort to pull when you voted?  Although I know computers alleviate a lot of pain in the long run, I would have liked to vote by pulling a big lever.  There’s something a little more satisfying in that than in just poking a screen and then pushing a red flashing light. 

I did get a sweet sticker, that says, “I voted” with an American flag.  It’s just like giving blood!  Now all they need is to give out free cookies at the end.
