I voted today.
It’s nice that the early voting options have become available so those that work regular 8-5 jobs can have an increased chance to spend a few minutes exercising a constitutional right without having to be penalized when trying to vote on election day and lines running longer than what can reasonably be managed during a lunch break if the after-work family schedule is too full to be able to make it before polls close.
That said, I did notice something interesting as I walked up to the voting station. There’s signs indicating a demarkation line that basically indicates – “no campaigning beyond this point”. Signs marked the grassy areas around the voting location, but what I noticed struck me as one-sided. Most of the signs tended towards only one political party, with the most prominent placements (as close to the voting line as allowed) reserved for one particular candidate.
Yes, in an effort to remain neutral, I am intentionally avoiding any specific party mentions. Just something I found interesting, and encourage you to watch for wherever you are when you go to cast your own vote.
You are going to vote, right?
