I started to vote today. I should be done later this week.
I don’t have to stand in a line out in the rain or sun or snow.
I don’t have to show my photo ID.
I don’t have to hide behind a curtain.
I don’t have to use a secret card or a machine.
I don’t have to run a gauntlet of electioneers handing out stickers and pamphlets, or trip over signs stuck in the grass.
I don’t have to bring a “cheat sheet” so I would remember who to vote for.
I started to vote today. It will take a week, I’m guessing, to finish. A little bit each day, over lunch, after dinner, bit by bit. It’s a long ballot (though shorter than most), so I’ll just take my time..
