I did my Civil Duty and went to the polls today! I opted to do early voting in Ohio (technically as an absentee ballot.)
The whole thing was very easy, actually. I went to the Hamilton County Board of Elections on Broadway (conveniently located across from the gay bar, "On Broadway.")
After being asked about who I was and where I lived (as verified by a kind woman at a computer,) I filled out a general form, as well as an envelope in which the absentee ballot would be placed. I was given 2 very large pieces of paper and an envelope. While I was expecting something more electronic in nature, it never materialized.
Damn right I'm mad! I'm so mad at the current administration I could scream! The government asked me personally, "Matt, who do you want to run the nation."
I unapologetically gave my feedback to the government, shooting down every Republican on the ballot! Nope. No vote for the grandpa/caribou Barbie ticket.
After voting in a huddled group of divided stalls, I walked to the exit and used a glue stick to seal the envelope.
I wish I could have taken a picture of the scene. I would say there were 40+ people voting at the same time. The crowd included a small number of older white people and a larger percentage of African Americans of various ages and genders. I was pleased by the interest!
I left feeling really good. Where my schedule is so busy, it's now assured that I have voted in such an important election!
I felt empowered! And very pro-American!
