Hi Frank S: You are right....I am happy he voted. And he is the father of 2 of my grandchildren, has a Chevy truck that can tow 16,000 pounds (that is what he claims), has a Prodigy brake controller.....yes, we do have lots to talk about. He doesn't get my AS obsession yet......maybe we will work on that on Thanksgiving. pm

FYI:
"On a particularly divisive day in the U.S. Senate, party leaders publicly disparage each other and strive to sabotage each other's policy plans. On a particularly divisive day in 133 BC, Roman senators smashed furniture and beat Tiberius Gracchus to death with a chair leg."

"This is the institution that inspired America's founders? Yes, it is. In the early United States of America, leaders like John Adams, James Madison, and James Monroe cited Roman histories as they searched for a system of checks and balances. So, when Americans go to the polls to elect a new senate KnowledgeNews goes to Rome."

I voted after scrubbing the inside of the AS, and before making dinner.

Thank goodness ...

I voted early. Even then, there were at least 30 ahead of me.

Today, at bout 4:30, I passed the polling place, going east. There was a massive traffic jam of people getting off work, going west. There must have ben a couple of hundred people in line and they were parking everywhere. I didn't know till I arrived home and saw the note that my wife was somewhere in that mass of people. She still hasn't arrived home over 2 hours later.

Our county is growing by leaps and bounds. There are 40% more people in the county than there were when the macines were ordered. Add to that a long and complicated ballot and there are problems for sure.

Yep, but the polling place was virtually deserted...Nice to get in and out quickly, but it felt kind of weird. Hope there are a lot of absentee ballots out there~Such an amazing privilege.
Good thread! Thanks.

I voted - by mail in ballot. There are no polling places now in my part of the country. They have been closed and balloting is done by mail. I filled out my ballot when I paid the bills. It was convenient but here's what I missed:

The opportunity to see and chat with my neighbors at the polls.
Taking my kid to the polls to vote with me and having that oh so easy conversation about the process and then modeling it.
I missed the "special effort and thought" that is reinforced when you have to go out of your way to do something. This year, balloting was just another envelope in a tall pile on my desk to be dealt with, stamped and mailed.

But.... I voted.

I voted! Always do. Never have missed an opportunity to exercise my right to vote since I was first able at 21!

I live in a small county, walk in, vote, get my "I voted sticker" and be on my way.

I would sure like to see more folks vote, however. Too many times people "don't bother". If you don't vote, you don't really have room to complain. We all gotta do our part. Well, that's my take anyway.

Hi Pjpoll and Caddy, and Chaplain,

Yes, I voted..agreed, you can't complain if you don't let your voice be heard at the polls!..I've been voting by absentee ballot over the past 5 years or so..it is easier since I'm never sure if I'll be around on election day!

Of course, this year's ballot was so heavy, I had to put 2 stamps!..

With all due respect, how could you possibly imagine that "every one" is happy with the returns?

I'd like to thank everybody for conforming to the no politicking policy and keeping it cool here. We voted this week -- now please remember to let your reps know what you (not the lobbyists) are thinking in the coming two years!

I'm happy the campaign phone calls and political attack ads will finally stop...at least until next year.

When I started this thread, I wondered if it might go in a political direction. I too was very pleased with the way it went.

I thank everyone who voted yesterday!

Sumerkid, next election for sure!
