I've only had to stand in line at the polls once before, when a levy was on
the ballot to build our new high school. I vote in a little one room
township house in the boonies. It was nice seeing so many friends and
neighbors, some folks I hadn't talked to in awhile. The parking lot on
each side of the road was packed with an array of vehicles -- everything
from muddy farm trucks to SUVs to sport compacts. I guess the biggest
thing that struck me was how many young people there were... at least half
those in line were twentysomething, and a lot were voting for the first
time. Two kids who graduated with my son last spring were there.
Made me feel great to be an American. :-)
