Today was the day. I voted. But I almost did not.
Husband requested absentee voting for both of us. I mailed his a couple weeks ago. Since I am in USA weekly, I decided to vote at polls.
I went for early voting tonight. The computer system immediately identified me as an absentee voter. Over comes Judge. He grabs a couple forms and asks me a few questions:
Did I request absentee voting? Yes
Do I have form? Not with me
Where do you live? Well ... Mexico
Judge gets on phone. Can they cancel my absentee request and allow me to vote? This Judge was great - he was definitely working to help me exercise my right to vote.
Judge was even surprised when the "people on phone" said I was good to go. I signed a few papers and was in my booth within minutes.
Husband and I canceled out the other's vote for President. Can you guess who voted for whom?
