Just came back from voting. I think it’s imperative that we all vote especially this year. It doesn’t matter who you vote for but we’ve all got to care. We’re in this together. This might be the toughest time in our country’s history. Everyday something else seems to fall apart and now covid is back full bore and ready to start murdering people this winter. Sad situation. I know people think voting can be a real pain. I was one of those people but from the time that I was given the privilege, I always used it. I’m a child of the sixties and early seventies and we were the original protest generation. The thought of not exercising my right to vote was not an option. Technology and good judgment have finally made it one of the easiest things in the world you can do. Many people are doing what I do now. For the last 20 years, I’ve been voting while sitting my butt on this couch. Let me tell you how I do it so next time we have an election it’s not the pain in the ass you think it is and you’ll get out there and vote this way. I get my ballot through the mail. Once I receive that ballot it will never go through the mail again. It’s very simple. Go online to the supervisor of the election site in your area and just request a mail-in Ballot. I received mine 6 weeks before the elections. It affords me a lot of privilege. Convenience is really down on the bottom of my list but it certainly is a consideration. Most importantly, I’m able to sit here with my tablet in one hand and my ballots in the other and research each candidate. I never was one to vote party only. I try and vote for the person who best represents the people and who will have integrity and intelligence while doing their job. I research every candidate and make what I feel is the right decision for myself. Now like many, especially in these times I don’t trust the USPS. Not for any particular reason except that with all this BS floating around about election tampering I want to be the one who touches that ballot last before it goes in the Box.

The system seems to have been set up perfectly to have all those things happen. I finished voting at about 2:00 today and drove down to my local polling place. Parking was easy. I had to walk about a hundred yards …no big deal. I didn’t stand in that long line of people. I held up my mail-in ballot and a gentleman who worked there pointed me to a door that didn’t have anyone in front of it. Nobody was lined up for that door. I walked in turned left and two feet in front of me was a poll worker who asked me if she could see my sealed ballot. She looked at it, said thank you, and told me to put it in this gigantic steel safe with a mail hole on the top. I did that, she handed me one of those I voted stickers and said it gets picked up three times a day. From there on I trust the system. I believe that there are checks and balances and in addition in two or three days, I can go to the supervisor’s site and make sure the ballot was received and counted. On top of that, I left my phone number on the front of the ballot in the space that was provided, and they will call you if there’s a problem with the signature or something like that. That’s how easy it is to vote. I was home in 20 minutes round trip. We live in a great country. My dad’s generation, which is considered the greatest generation of all time fought for this country. They fought for our right to be free. They fought for our right to be a democracy which gives us the right to vote. My father flew airplanes in the United States Army Air Corps. Every day he went up in one of those B-17s, which became B-24’s as the technology progressed, he and everyone else who flew risked their lives. Those airplanes were called flying coffins. I avail myself of my right every time that I can. I do it because I want to . I do it because I believe that we all need to, and I do it because I respect the people that fought to put us in a position where we have a say in who rules this country. You see my point. That’s my post for the day. Everybody stay safe and please wear a mask. It doesn’t make you less than, it makes you a hero. It makes you a patriot.
