Next to the washing machine

November 2, 2010 5:18 pm

OK, I'll be honest. I didn't vote for positions like Secretary of State, Controller, Treasurer, or Livermore Area Recreation & Park District Directors. I'd already spent hours trying to make informed decisions about all the other items on the ballot and I just couldn't bring myself to care about those positions.

Anyway. I went to my polling location to vote. Turns out my polling location for this election was some person's garage. Yup, like attached to their house. I found it kind of strange to be filling out a ballot next to a washing machine, and below a shelf holding sleeping bags.

And now, I've voted, participated in the democratic process, and ready to be annoyed at all the screw-ups awaiting us in the next 2 years.

  1. You're kidding! How is anyone supposed to take that seriously?

    Unlike nearly every other year when the Cromwell schools held a teacher in-service day on election day, school was in session which meant nowhere to park at the high school. Lame - especially when voter turnout was projected to be high. But we did better than Bridgeport where they ran out of ballots and now will probably hold up the results of the gubernatorial race for some time while everyone files lawsuits about which side was most affected by the snafu.

  2. Dad hopes you didn't insert your ballot in the lint trap when you were done. Hope you don't turn up on hidden camera while people laugh at the guy who really thought you were supposed to vote in a garage.
