I just voted and wanted to share with those who might care: my fellow kossacks.
If you know the voting schedules you may think, hey, how did she vote in Arizona? Isn’t it too soon?
But if you are in the military or live overseas, you can vote earlier. In fact, I wrote to my county recorder and got them to send me the ballot by email. All I had to do was to print it out myself. Which was useful because although I am usually overseas, this time I was not, and I did not want to get a neighbor to have to forward the ballot or to vote provisionally.
After filling it out I had the option to scan it in or to fax it or to mail it. I have chosen to mail it.
My husband who is not as, well, quite as enthusiastic as I am about these things, wondered why I did not want to wait for the debates to make up my mind. Really? As Bill Maher has pointed out, how can anyone be undecided at this point? The candidates are not at all alike.
I can imagine that Mitt Romney might say stuff that pleases me in the debate. But I can’t imagine believing him.
Voting may not be easy for everyone. It was, however, for me. It helps to find the easiest way.
Now we just need to get out the vote!
