We had two weeks of early voting but I wasn't able to vote early...the hours the polls were open was not compatible with my work hours. There were record numbers of people voting early and I heard lots of stories about the long lines at the various early voting locations. I figured I would just take my chances going to the polls after work today.
The manager of our office told me to go vote and not clock out when I went. To do it on the bank's time. My office is a little over 2 miles northeast of my house and my polling location is a little over a mile west of my house. So I left the office at 1:12 this afternoon and drove to St James where I vote. I walked in -- found no lines -- voted and was back at work at 1:30. That's less than 20 minutes all total. I couldn't believe it. I'm glad I didn't try to go through the hassel of voting early.
Luck, love, and laughter,
