Drove 7 Hours to Vote

I was stuck out in California today, one day longer than I expected. I got up early, got my business done, and drove about 7 hours to get back to Phoenix in time to vote.

I have absolutely no patience for people who can't find the time to vote. Its ridiculously easy, except for some of those idiot counties in Ohio I am looking at right now that have such long lines - how can you manage things so poorly?

You might ask why I do not absentee vote. I like voting on election day, I like the ritual, sortof like the secular version of taking communion. Voting by mail feels more like paying bills. It loses a lot for me.
