Happy Election Day!

If you want to live in Manhattan, you’d better get used to standing in line, long lines and yes, for pretty much everything. Even though I’m used to it by now, well sorta, I have been known ahem…to complain.

But not today.

The line leading into my polling station was a proud sight to behold. The dedicated volunteers who’ve been “manning” this particular station for years exclaimed it was the largest turn-out in their personal histories.

Even though I went during what should have been a non-peak time, still it took me a little over an hour to get inside and about another 20 minutes from there to the actual booth. It was worth it. Throwing that lever felt, well, so gosh darned good.

So, if you haven’t made it out yet to cast your vote, stop reading this and go ASAP! Remember, our vote is our voice. If we don’t vote, we give up our rights to bragging and complaining in equal measure–and personally I love to do both. 😉

Happy Election Day,

  1. This is my first time voting and it felt great and very nerve racking. I turned 18 last year and registered to vote as soon as possible. This is one election that will go down in history no matter who won.

  2. Good for you, Phoebe! And yes, I agree totally. Regardless of outcome, it was and is a thrill to participate in such a truly historic occasion.
