I signed up for mail-in ballots and had mine submitted last week. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that 68% of our county voted early! Two years ago, the machines failed, so I had to wait in line for 5 hours to vote. After the 3rd hour, there was no way I was leaving!

Design Gal said...

Mikey and Karie said...

I voted by absentee ballot and totally avoided any lines. Yea!

Done and done -- two weeks ago! The Oregon mail-in ballots are the best. You can take your time, think about everything carefully and no standing in line.

I took my new infant and my 3-year-old with me to vote. We all rocked the vote.

Last time I voted it was with three kids under 4. I finally ordered an early ballot, but then never mailed it. I had my husband drop it off today when he voted. It still counts!

Thanks for the chance to win one of your adorable mini-diaries. Maybe it will get me to write something in my own hand.

Molly said...

YES I rocked the vote... and it was not easy... racing in and out of the rain to be told I needed a utility bill because the address on my license was different? what? Back home and back to the polls again! Did I mention it was pouring? Vote... check.

St├ęphane Kardos said...

I'm not allowed to vote as I'm not an American citizen, but I'd love a diary! :)

tara said...

i voted :)

Amy said...

Yes I voted. Took my 4 year old daughter with me so she could see me vote for "Mobama". I don't think she was that impressed with the actual 30 seconds it took me to vote after all the build up.

Not only did I vote.. I did it early!

3 boys & a girl said...

I have always been so apathetic about politics, but today, for the first time, I was excited about voting. So thrilling to see the presidential nominees' names come up on my touch screen this morning. Hooray!

I voted (and picked up a marriage license) last week. We went back to the court house today (election day) to turn in our marriage license and so we could feel a part of the "action" at the live polls even though our votes had already been cast!
