OT: I voted and so should you!

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

As you all know today is election day! if you haven't already, go out and vote. Let your voice be heard.

Today was a pretty big day for me, because it was the first time that I was able to vote. It was a pretty smooth experience, because I voted later in the morning so there weren't many people out there. When I received my ballot it made me really feel like I was an adult. I was finally able to give my say in something so important, and I thought that was really cool.

Throughout the country voting experiences vary. On the east coast it appears they were able to go with electronic voting. I heard that in Florida it takes around twenty five minutes to fill out a ballot, I was really surprised by that.

Someone told me this quote that they got in a card, and I thought it was perfect.

"Vote. Someone died for your rights to do it."

If you did vote, Of course you voted, so how was your experience?

As always, feel free to follow me on Twitter

Please do not share who you voted for.

ed note -- watching this one closely. we're looking for experiential descriptions, not politics. if we can't keep it cool, I'll nuke this and we can pretend it didn't happen. -jbopp
