patriotic duty

B craned his neck around to see what I was doing.

'Jess, it's after midnight. Isn't it too late for a craft project?'

I looked up from where I was busily using the glue to stick labels on my envelope.

'Not too late. Right on time, actually.' I folded my paper, inserted it into an envelope, then swiveled around in my chair.

'Hey, honey, want to watch me vote?' I grinned, then put the envelope and another piece of paper in an additional envelope and licked the glue.

'I just did.'

Thanks to this site and others like it demystifying the absentee ballot process.

Good on you. I consider it a duty,too. Not to mention a privilege that too many people are denied.

Oh, if only I could vote in that election. Seriously. I'm living vicariously through good folks like you right now :)

I ordered up an absentee ballot for my sick & house-bound mother...I can't wait.

Rock on - you! We're still waiting for my husband's. Hoping it all comes with much time to spare.
