Somehow, the U.S. seems to have lost sight of the historic nature of this election, but I haven’t! Yeah, I’m with her! Happily so. Not “just because she’s a woman,” although that would be a valid reason for me. We don’t criticize people for voting for President Obama “just because he’s black.” And no one criticized the Democrats who voted Republican in 1984 because they didn’t want a woman even in second place on the ticket (Geraldine Ferraro). I absolutely did not vote for the lesser of two evils. I think Hillary Clinton was the most qualified candidate and she has good ideas and the most realistic plans of any candidate for how to achieve them. Whether she can realize any of them is another question, but it won’t be for lack of trying.
Thorin came along for the ride.
Our voting precinct has changed, so we used to all vote at the town hall, but now I vote at my dad’s church. Parking lot was full. There were about ten people waiting to register, about 40-50 people waiting in lines for voter numbers, and about 20 people casting ballots. I was voter 3666. This is the sign outside the entrance to voting. In Wisconsin we’re not allowed to take photos inside the polling place.
This is the old sanctuary, where my first memory takes place, where the funeral service for my mother was held. They voted to tear it down. Not big enough to hold everyone during worship anymore.
I’m including this photo just because I think it’s funny. And so typical of around here. Deer harvest is not far off. The orange sign is for a series of events for the grass widows and widowers, I guess.
