I Voted !!


Yup its me a supposedly responsible citizen :)

Here is story of the vote :) We have been hearing about the candidates in full force for the past few months, and by the time today came around I think almost all of us were just ready to get this thing over and done with.

So anyway, the polling stations here in the city are open from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm. The voting lines were predicted to be long and time consuming, as a lot of first time voters were expected to show up.

My family and me decided to get the voting done early in the morning to save us grief at the end of the day. We got up bright and early and headed to the Polling station after a healthy breakfast at 7:00am. We were very lucky, as the polling station was a mere 7 mins walk from our place, so we combined the voting with a pleasant early morning walk.

The polling place just happens to be Public school, and as soon as we entered we could see a lot of art in the hallways done by little kids. There was no line whatsoever. We went in, gave them our address to determine out congressional district. Once that was done we were asked for our identification, and once that was verified, we were led into a booth where we made the choices for President, Congress, Senate and Assembly.

After making our choices, we walked out of the polling place and headed back home having contributed to Democracy. And now I am back home munching on a piece of warm toast with heavenly melting butter....yummmmm

Oh did I mention I voted!!! Hurraayyyyyy!
