Election Day: Run, Drink, and Pray
The day is here! Finally allthe crazy advertisements and campaign signs will stop. And we will elect our first female president. :)
Since thiswas going to be a long day I wanted my am Tuesday morning run to end at the voting polls. Later on today I will be volunteer captain for poll monitors at two different schools from 3-7.
When I finished running 6 miles, I ended at my voting poll just when it opened at 7am. Already there was a line. A short line but a line. I overheard conversations around post elections drinks at 7pm night. I may have to join.
Four years agoI was a poll monitor and saw a lot of illegal discriminatory actions take place. I wonder if I would see that happen later today. At myvoting location , they had translators, ballots in several different languages, IDs were not asked for, and the police stated in their place and just checked people out. Unfortunately that is not something that happens across polls and it should. Many people don't know about their voting rights.
