    Default I voted

    Early voting here.
    No postage.
    Drop off ballot within a few blocks.
    That's the way it should be everywhere.
    VOTE.

    I don't listen to my legs!
    It's the voice in my head.
    Shut up!

    Congratulations.

    I hope the names of all the candidates you intended to vote for were on the ballot:

    Arkansas is not Washington.
    I'm fortunate to be in this state.
    There is inequality in these United States.

    My SO and I have a tradition to vote together first thing on election day. Then she volunteers as a poll worker later in the day. This year I'm going to volunteer after work. Participating in democracy is critical.

    Default Re: I voted

    I grew up with a polling spot at the corner of my street. Election day was like another holiday for us kids, the people with signs, collecting bumper stickers, the excitement around it- we hung out all day until the polls closed. I couldn't wait to be old enough to vote. Other than some "lost" years in college, I always, always vote. Even when the choices are not optimal.

    If you don't take part in the process, how can you complain about the outcome?

    I voted yesterday also. Super easy process. Every voting booth was filled, but it ran like clockwork. It was great to see so many folks during early voting.

    I moved to AZ in August and registered to vote within a few weeks. I got my ballot and I'm still working my way through the propositions and local candidates, but I expect to put it in the mail by Monday morning.

    Yup, me too. I've found early voting to be less of a hassle than doing it on the regular day. Whatever method they choose, I hope all the Salonistas will vote too.

    Have not always been a great voter but turned that around. Early voting complete.

    For the ballot measures, one was worded awkwardly. A post voting google review shows that I did not like my response on that issue. This is the last time I go without researching the ballot measures better.

    Makes me jealous of states that allow early voting. MO is behind the times (in more ways than one). I'll do it morning of at about 6-6:30 AM.

    I’ve sent my ballot in. Hopefully good people with good hearts and heads, with good intentions, will be put in offices that count.

    Politics are so fractious now..

    I registered to vote by mail, because the party I'm a member of doesn't see fit to send descriptions of who is on the ballot for my precinct, or what the ballot initiatives are, or frankly, anything. It's pathetic given how they say it's so important to vote.

    OTOH, though my (?) party isn't paying much attention to me, at least I'm not in Georgia.

    Or a native in North Dakota.

    I tend to mentally copy edit the voter’s pamphlet. And enjoy finding the candidates whose statements are weird rants ...
