I was up before the sun again today. After a hot cup of coffee I was out the door and in line at a neighborhood elementary school to cast my vote. The idea of standing in line on a chilly morning was not totally appealing, but the importance of voicing my choice by vote is worth any mild discomfort. Being from Oregon this was my first time having to stand in line to cast my vote. It was also my first time using a computer touch screen voting machine. Oregon offers voters the opportunity to cast their votes by mail in ballot.
While I prefer the mail in ballot - standing in line did give me a little feeling of civic pride.
Go out and make your voice heard today. Cast Your VOTE!
