I Voted - Did You?

At 7:40 a.m., I was voter number 70 at my ward/precinct polling place.  I vote at about the same time on both primary and general election day -- usually before 8 a.m. as I bring the kids to school.  Usually, my voter number is under 20.  

One precinct in Philly reported that by 9:15 a.m., 115 of 500 voters registered to that precinct had voted.  WOW!

This may be the most important election of our lifetime.  Please go stand in line and vote.  Wear comfortable shoes.  Bring a sock to knit on in line.  But please, exercise your right to vote -- even if it's the only exercise you get today.
