Voting Hoopla

I didn't do early voting because I wanted to be in the thick of the voting hoopla on election day. During early voting, I happened to be at my library which was a voting spot. I asked how long the wait was, and they said it was about 45 minutes. I asked what was the best time of day to vote and they advised me to get in line before the polls opened, because all day, everyday the wait had been at least 45 minutes. There seemed to be lots of early voting hoopla! Every time I drove past that library during early voting, there was a long line out into the parking lot.

I went to vote today, around 10:30am and there was NO ONE in line. I didn't wait one single minute. There wasn't a line of people to feel patriotic with.

So much for the hoopla. But I know people got out there and voted this year- I guess they just couldn't wait until Tuesday. They wanted to avoid lines but got stuck in them. I wanted to be in a line, but missed it. Oh, the irony!

But all is well that ends well. Assuming this election goes as it should, I will be VERY happy!
