Wow, I participated in democracy and all I got was this sticker….
I’m actually pretty proud of that sticker.
I had one of those “moments of enlightenment” yesterday when I walked into the United Supermarkets location at 4th and Milwaukee to buy my usual lunch of a case of wine and a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos when I saw that it was the patio. full of activity I stopped and realized early voting was going on, and I hadn’t voted yet.
Well, that all changed yesterday. Very quickly. Emphasis on “fast”.
I walked in and was directed to a table where two district employees were sitting. All I did was provide my driver’s license to verify (anyone who complains about voter ID is an idiot), and get a passcode to access the voting terminal. Basically I put in a blank piece of paper that would be my vote and verified with the passcode I said who I was. Then I made my choices.
Yeah, no, I’m not going to tell you or anyone who I voted for. It’s nobody’s business, and I hate judgmental people who only rate you based on what you voted for.
The system then printed out my choices, and I fed them into the actual scanner that counted my vote. I did so. 4 minutes in total and I walked out with a shiny new sticker telling the world that my opinion matters.
So if you’re registered and have a valid ID (I can’t stress enough), go vote. today Make it cold while you pick up Sunny D for lunch. It’s that simple. Uh-mericuh
BTW, don’t blame me. I voted for Kodos.
