So I voted, again. This would be my 2nd time having a say in the Presidential race in USA. Feels good ina few different ways apart from the fact that I never really voted in India.
In ’06, I’d blogged on it and what a counting that turned out.
Obama ought win, but historically it’s been proved that close races such as these could tip either way despite what the polls say. What do they say about statistics again? I ought know, I play with them all the time.
So went to my center, which happened to be the kids’ middle school, and stood in line for 50 minutes, just for the reason that my last name fell into the more popular block. The rest of the letters waltezed in and out. The lady in front of me and I agreed that perhaps this was another reason we need retain our maiden names!
As I stood in line, I noticed all these posters belwo that the daughters grade worked on. Remember the civics lesson and her pamphlet on voting. Well, they had a mock election day last week, and the whole scenario was played out. Democrats won all around.
Let’s hope we could say the same tomorrow as well. It’s time.
Did you vote? Doesn’t matter where you are located, but the question is, did you vote, recently?
