Voted Yet?

I just mailed my ballot, the day before election day. I’d intended to do so a week ago. Oh well, at least it’s done. The State of Washington, in it’s infinite wisdom has decided that we all shall vote by mail now. I don’t like it. I guess it’s convenient, and all and I’m not limited to a such a small window of time to vote, it just needs to be postmarked by election day.

I miss going to the polling place. There, It feels like I’ve voted. It’s the experience. All of us from a precinct gathering at one place, and interacting with the volunteers. I miss that, the personal nature of it.

Now, voting by mail I feel less certain that it will be counted. What if the mail plane gets hit by a terrorist attack? What if the postal worker drops my envelope behind the desk? What if…?

Well, at least I voted.
