Vote


 If you haven't done so already,  please vote. Some, myself included, live in states where early voting is allowed, and we did just that. If you see the length of the lines, don't be discouraged--remember, rather than the "scrunched-together" ones we're used to, they include people who are observing social distancing. And if you're tempted to give up, recall what's at stake. Vote!

We live in a republic (so far) that depends on the votes of the people to choose the leaders, That means that each vote--including yours--is important. And if you don't want our system of government to change, vote!

We'll watch the results this evening as we always do, although this year is totally different from years past and we may not know the final results for anywhere from a short time to a long one. No matter the outcome, remember what my parents taught me--if you don't vote, you can't fuss about the result. I hope you'll heed that advice. I did. Vote!

I voted.:-) The line was out the door and around the corner in the dark of the early morning, but it was moving fast. I brought an e-reader to pass the time.

It's important--glad you did.

I voted a couple of weeks ago. And now I'm going to bed. Staying up watching the votes trickle in won't change the outcome. lol

And I'm answering the next morning. Looks like Republicans held the Senate, Democrats held the House, and the Presidency is still up in the air. We'll see.
