I voted today. Since my presence will be required in some extended meetings on November 7, and not voting is simply not an option for me, I opted to vote early at our county elections office. I was somewhat surprised to find a steady line of folks doing the same.
My usual polling place is in a school. As such I must give up my right to "keep and bear arms" in order to exercise my voting rights. I always find it ironic that my Conceal Handgun Permit is a valid ID to vote, but my concealed handgun is not permitted in the polling place. Not so this year.
