Small Town

 This is why I like living in a small town (well, it does not even qualify as a town as it is unincorporated and does not even have a single traffic light.)
6:00 a.m. - Take out the trash.  Bring in the newspaper.
6:02 a.m. - Drive to the voting precinct.
6:05 a.m. - Arrive at voting precinct and park ten feet from the door.
6:10 a.m. - Vote.
6:12 a.m. - Drive out of the parking lot (but pause, roll down the passenger window, and take a picture of the flag fluttering in the breeze).
6:16 a.m. - Arrive home.
6:25 a.m. - Log onto work computer and begin my work day, right on time at 6:30 a.m.

No matter what your views or affiliation, voting is a precious right.  Hard to believe women did not get to vote in the beginning!

I exercised my right to vote today as well. Couldn't wait to get there so i could wear my I VOTED TODAY sticker. They weren't giving them out this year????? I was proud to vote and let everyone know I did it today. What's wrong with those people

Budget cuts?

What--you don't have any more alphabet stamps to make your own?
(just kidding, cause I know what you mean. We did get stickers here in R'ville).
