Today is Election Day!! Hooray!!!
I have been drowning in political fliers. I have been bombarded with calls. I have had to interrupt my quiet evenings to answer my door only to find strangers who want to stand there and talk my evening away. I hate the time that leads up to election day.
I'm not one of those who blows off her civic duty; I vote in every election. Yes, every election, even the ones where you are just voting for dog catcher. I make the effort to actually know what and who I'm voting for. So fliers, phone calls, and interrupting my evening aren't going to help. I've already done my research. If I want to talk to you, I'll call you, knock on your door or send you a letter.
So, today will be the end of the constant barrage of harassment, (I hope), and I'm going to celebrate with a nice evening of nothing going on and a beer.
