I voted

Did you? If you live in Forsyth County, the answer's probably, "No." The voter turnout was pathetic, as far as I can tell. The oldest child came with me to our local voting station at about 3:45 PM, and they still hadn't reached even 200 voters yet.

On a happy note, that gave the election officials plenty of time to explain to the oldest the actual logistics of voting. He loved it. And I believe the "I voted" sticker will be going to the next show-and-tell. I hope he shares with his class the thought one of the election officials had when I commented that I found the low voter turnout disheartening.

"If you don't vote, don't complain later!"
