I just dropped off my absentee ballot at City Hall. It feels kind of strange to have the voting done with. I’m usually such a voting geek and love to go into the little booth, but they’re predicting all kinds of lines this year, and, Civics Be Damned, my baby needs to nap.
I was unreasonably nervous voting, even though I was in my own dining room. I kept running my finger back and forth: “Obama…this circle, ok, so…Obama. Would be this circle to fill in. Right? This circle. Ok. Ok. Obama is this circle.” I felt like one of those Palm Beach senior citizens from 2000.
If you’re in Maine, get your absentee ballot here. Mine came the day after I requested it.
