Election morning in my neighborhood. The polls opened at 6 a.m. My husband and I walked the little more than half a mile to our voting place – a beautiful white church with a high steeple, where we’ve voted for the past 23 years. It was dark when we left home, but light enough 40 minutes later to take the picture of our street without using a Flash. It promises to be a most fascinating day, as our polling place had a line – something we normally do not see when voting.
Public schools are closed today, but I teach at an independent school, and it is open. Nonetheless, I have taken the day off. Along with my neighbor, another teacher, and her daughter, I am driving almost 3 hours west to the town of Hazleton, Pennsylvania to help “get out the vote.”
There is a new feature in WordPress that allows polls on blogs. What better time to try one out than today. Friends in other countries have suggested that they should be able to vote in U.S. Elections. Now is your chance 🙂
