Went to the County Administration Building today to pay the property taxes for World Headquarters.
Saw this whiteboard in the lobby just inside the front door.
Went downstairs to 102-A and behind this county-owned patriotic sign was a long line of my fellow citizens waiting to vote, two weeks to the day before the formal Election Day. (That’s the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November, for our readers outside the US.)
Did I vote early? No. There were a few too many of my fellow citizens in that line. But it was heartening to see, and there will be other opportunities to either show up earlier in the day or try again when I have more time to wait. Or I can take a gamble that I won’t be sick or hurt and decide to indulge myself in the romance of voting in my own precinct on Election Day itself.
And this leads up to today’s non-political political message. This is an important election. Don’t let history happen to you while you do nothing. Vote. Please vote.
