I hopped in line at 6:50 am this morning with the rest of the early-morning crowd… lets just say it was not exactly a cheery crew.
Stressed out commuters shifted from left foot to right faster than a three year old in line for the potty, but none of that nervous energy came out in noisiness; the entire elementary school was eerily silent.

Thankfully, the (mostly adorably elderly) poll-workers were rockin’, and the line was speedy and it was not long before I stood, ballot in hand and ready to vote. I do not plan to tell you who I voted for. . . (if you know me, you can probably guess), but vote, I did.
And, speaking as an almost-perpetually-stressed-out special education teacher who woke up at 4:30 am with a full day ahead; if I can vote, so can you.
