voted, as usual, except

i have never had to wait in line before.

i havent missed an election, national, state, or local, since i was 18.

in l.a., santa cruz, new york, oakland, where ever i have voted, i have never had to wait in line. heck, sometimes i am the only person in my polling place. i am downright moved to have had to wait for an hour to vote. early. on sunday. at the courthouse. the line went was out the door. inside it snaked down the stairs, around the hallway, back into another hallway, and doubled back to get to the voting station.

it was awesome. i hate waiting in line, especially for something that should be quick and effortless, but it was fantastic.

as nice as it was to participate in this groundbreaking election, i suspect my electoral college votes are counted already, which is fine. im a blue guy in a blue state.

more importantly was the chance to vote for a smackdown on a couple of repressive propositions from out of state “religious” institutions that i hope will fail and break the bank of the folks who sponsored them.
