i voted. the end

Sean suggested I write a post on voting but I said "I don't know. I don't have much to say about it." And he suggested this. It made me laugh.

"It feels good to vote. It makes me feel like an active citizen and I like knowing that I am exercising my 1/280,000,000 say in what goes on around here."

ha. And that is very much how I feel.

Also: a dialogue from IM.

Sean says:
did you get a sticker when you voted?
Jen says:

Jen says:

Jen says:

Jen says:

That's so great. It's like you're making fun of him for saying a random word.

Also, I'd like to echo Sean's sentiments on the subject. You had food where you voted? Lucky...

I gave Anna my sticker, just because she loves them, and lots of people thought that was "just adorable." "Oh, look. She voted. How cute." I made jokes like, "Yeah, she did it all. I don't even know what she put down..." It was funny. (Trevor makes fun of me for only telling stories where the punch line is me saying something funny. But I can't help it...)

Jen said...

sometimes the only funny stories are stories where you say the punchline, so, what can you do?

I agree with you. Everyone I know is doing a blog post about how wonderful, humbling, inspiring, blah blah blah I voted today. So I'm glad you at least mostly resisted.

I was thinking the same thing today. What is the meaning of those stickers? Are they for bragging, to keep people from bugging you to go vote, or a reward (stickers for adults)?
I think it is silly.
