Voted

I voted yesterday – no lines, walked right in with my cheat sheet. Colorado has the country’s longest ballot this election with 14 state-wide questions (although, in all fairness, 4 were removed but after ballots were printed). We have a particularly ugly amendment defining a person from the moment of fertilization.

Less than a week to go and my head hasn’t exploded. Score.

6 smart people left their mark:

    That picture got a huge laugh from me. :) And I so needed it today because my head almost exploded last night.

    I’m off to vote today!

    No way! Yours is longer than California’s? I don’t know….when you tack on those local initiatives here in San Diego I gotta wonder :-)

    Love the picture. May I steal it for my blog on the 4th? I’ve actually filled out my absentee ballot, but I want to walk it in on Tuesday and get my “I voted” sticker so I can get my free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream :-)

    I voted on Monday. Most WA voters vote by mail and we got our ballots early last week. Voted at my desk, stuck a stamp on it and off it went. There is NO WAY IN HELL my Presidential vote could be swayed in the next week. Now I just wish the election was over already so I could breathe a sigh of relief (which had better not be a shriek of horror, I’m just saying).

    I’m so afraid I’ll forget to remove my Obama button from my purse when I go to the polls. I’d take it off now but I just can’t bring myself to do it.

    I just voted at the local Episcopalian church, the Church of the Holy Comforter (that name always gives me a laugh), and there weren’t very many people there. I did run into the Broomfield County clerk and recorder and had a nice little chat with him.

    At the end, I kept staring at the presidential part of the ballot. I really did mark it for Obama, didn’t it? I’ve heard so many stories about vote suppression shenanigans lately that I can hardly believe my own eyes about what I’ve marked on the ballot.

    I voted for the initiative to make it harder to change the Colorado constitution. Maybe they should make every would-be amender read the entire Colorado constitution before amending it. Do you think that would help?
