I voted today

This campaign has lasted so long it didn’t seem real when I was in line to vote today. The line at the Duncanville Library was long, it took us about 30 minutes to get through. I can only image what things will be like across the country next Tuesday. High voter turnout is a Republicans worst nightmare.

Of course I cast my presidential ballot for Barack Obama. Looking at the Names Obama and Biden on the electronic voting machine screen was sort of strange. My wife and I took our son, so that one day he can remember the day that his mom and dad voted for a black man for president.

In all, I voted for 22 Democrats, 2 Republicans, and I sat out on two races. Whether your ancestors came over on the Mayflower, or the slave ship Jesus, from Asia or Latin America, make sure you go and vote. We all owe it to those who came before us.
