Well, the icon lies (this year) - I voted using a ball-point pen, and the ballot was dropped off last night at my local moviehouse. Being an off-year election, there were a bunch of races I wasn't following (county auditor, regional middle muckety muck, school poobah), so I didn't feel comfortable voting for people this year.
However, there were numerous issues on the ballot that I did feel more educated about. Do we need transportation? Yes. Do we need money for schools? Sure.
They gave me some "I voted" stickers, which are around here someplace. If only I still had my sticker album from my youth. Oooh, next year, the "I voted" stickers could be puffy, or glittery, or have googly eyes. That'd rock.
