Election Day Fun

So, yesterday, I spent some time on the City of Boston Web Site and first made sure that I was correctly registered and then figured out where I had to go to vote. Lucky for me, it was the firehouse in the South End which is a measley block from my apartment.

This morning, I got up early (for me), went through my normal routine and then headed out the door sans backpack and tea and wandered over to the firehouse. There was a bit of a line, probably 50 to 75 people. Didn’t look too bad. At this point, it was about 8. Half an hour or so later, I had finished my ballot and pushed it in to the little scanning machine. Looked like it was number 350 or so. Considering, it was only 8:30, and there were just as many people waiting in line from when I started, seemed like a pretty good turnout.

The highlight of the morning came from a school bus full of kids. When the school bus stopped at the red light in front of the fire station, the kids, seeing the line and knowing what was going on all started chanting “Kerry! Kerry!” Rather amusing and cute. Also, good to know the kids had a good idea of what was going on.

Now to the fun part. Any bets on when this election will finally be decided?
