Today I Will Cast My Vote

I’m about to leave my house and there is a good chance I will vote before work this morning. I’m lucky to live around the corner from my voting station, so I’ll drive by and if it looks quiet enough, I will stop in to vote. Worst case scenario, I will just go on my way home from work tonight.

I think Americans forget how lucky they have it to be able to vote for their elected officials… and to also vote for other items on the ballot. I feel very blessed to have the chance to vote for my president. I’ll just keep my fingers crossed that the person I voted for wins!

While this sounds silly, I also can’t wait to get an “I voted!” sticker. I mean, the older you get, the less opportunity you have to wear stickers all day. Am I right?

I hope that you all take a moment from your day and head to your local polling stations. It is an important day, folks. Make the best of it.

Update: I just got back in my car after voting with the cutest little old ladies. I, unfortunately, did not get an “I voted!” sticker. I can’t begin to tell you how much that bums me out.

Update #2: I made myself my own voting post-it. It’s the little things, folks.

    Ha! I was so excited to get my first-time-ever “I voted” sticker today! 🙂 This is such an exciting day… I just hope it will end just as exciting 🙂

      It is exciting! I am so excited for you. I remember when I was younger and I could vote for the first time. I was so happy and so proud. I’m proud and happy for you too!

    Just found your blog through San! My friend and I were just talking about how much we love the stickers, and her polling location didn’t provide them this year either! What is up with that?!

    I proudly wore mine all day and even fell asleep with it on, haha. Hooray for democracy and stickers!

      Lauryn- Thanks for stopping by… I can’t wait to check out your blog. I am insanely jealous of your sticker, but glad to hear you actually got one!

    I think it’s awesome you made your own sticker. I do think the sticker is fun bonus when it comes to voting. I’d be bummed if I didn’t get one, too!
