I finally got around to voting!
I like to use the absentee ballot when I can and I filled one out for this upcoming election.
Problem was, I didn't mail it off in a timely manner.
So, after work, I drove it up to the county registrar and dropped it off.
I considered actually voting as one may vote before Election day over at the Registrar's office.
Lo and behold, I couldn't even find a parking spot and even then the line to vote up there was 10 people deep before you even were in the door!!!!
Amazing it should be that busy on the first rainy day in months here.
Not to mention, it's also Halloween!
