Absentee Ballots

I vote, therefore I am.

Yes, boys and girls, taking into consideration that:

  • My flight to Florence departs at 5 p.m. on November 4th;

  • I should be at the airport at 3 p.m. at the latest (earlier if possible);

  • Everybody and their cousin are coming out of the woodwork to vote in that day; and

  • The likelyhood of long lines at the polls may or may not make me late for my flight,

    I decided to bite the bullet and join the throngs of people who are voting early.

    Yipeeeee!!!!!!!!!!

    As greta_k and rheabecc had previously pointed out, the Commonwealth of Virginia allows you to do your absentee voting in person. Therefore, I showed up this morning at the appropriate place, ID in hand, and ready to rock and roll.

    I must say, the line was a bit long, but not terribly. However, the poll workers have this operation running smoother than a baby's bum, and the whole thing didn't take me more than 30 minutes.

    I feel so relieved!

    And now, back to the drawing board. A sandwich is calling my name and then it's back to work.
