I voted today, have you voted yet? My husband and I had a little time to spare this morning, so we decided to go ahead and head up to the Collin County Community College and vote.
It was a little awkward since we don't really talk politics in our house. We're two very strong-headed people and we're both NEVER wrong. It's been brought up a couple of times, but no real opinions were given about the people, though we did talk about the issues since it's the issues that matter the most.
Needless to say, for a split second, I thought we were going to vote for different people, but we didn't.
I had never stepped foot in Quad C (that's what we call it around here since it's a long name). It was fairly clean. The voting space was very small and not private at all. Kids (are they kids or what age are these college people these days?) were sitting around waiting for their next class, and it was loud.
The voting booths weren't even booths. They were computer screens with a 6 inch screen on either side so the person next to you couldn't "cheat". I went to the empty one at the far back while my husband chose the very first booth at the front.
I chose to vote early because I don't see how the rest of the week or weekend could change my mind. I don't think there's anything else that any of the candidates can say that they haven't already said.
It's almost like when I was dating Mike and said, "What else do you need to know about me that you don't already know?" He didn't have an answer, so I told him that either I was leaving or we were getting married. Why drag things out when they don't need to be? We celebrated our third anniversary last week.
Anyway, get out and vote. If you don't know by now, you're not going to know. What are you waiting for? Personally, I was waiting for each party to say "Early April Fool's! Here are our real candidates!!" but it never happened! Oh well, maybe in 4 years we'll get some better choices.
