Okay, So I Voted....

I woke up this morning, played a bit of guitar, paid a few bills, then walked outside to head to the polls. It was a beautiful day with no snow on my lawn, but lovely snow on Mount Olympus:

I approached the voting place, an elementary school, and surveyed the overwhelmingly large voter turnout mayhem:
Voter Turnout Mayhem

After entering the parking lot, I noticed that the school was still in session...what's this nonsense I hear about schools closing for he election?

I proceed to take my place in the long, long line to get into the building to vote:
The crowded voting line

This fellow is on his way out as I am entering...it's a bad sign...I'm told that when he showed up to vote he was only 23 years old!
Growing old in line

I get inside the building and survey the number of people ahead of me in my district - it's lookin' pretty tough so far. Do I wait it out? Or do I give up and go home?
The line to get my ballot

I flip a coin and decide to stay. Here's my ballot - it's essentially the same as the last election. Fortunately, I was not educated in Florida, so I should be able to muddle through without too much trouble:

After punching my chads, I take a quick photo of the near riots and carnage at the polls. There simply must be some reform of this system! It's just crazy...how could anyone manage such disorder?

Finally, I escape the mayhem and see, once again, the sight that I saw as I left my home so very very long ago (15 minutes?) as I embarked upon my journey to vote:

We used to get election day off as a kid.

I never got an election day off school.

Holy hell, this was funny. I didn't get election day off, either.
