Vote Early and Often

It’s that time of year here in the Garden State. Tomorrow is Primary Election Day.

Jim and I will both be working the polls tomorrow morning: 5:15am is our start time and the polls are open until 8PM. Talk about a really LONG day. New Jersey does this as the Garden State. They make sure that farmers, up with the rooster anyway, get a chance to vote before they start their day.

The ” big” election is 2020, naturally, as that is the presidential election year. Tomorrows’ primary is basically for local and New Jersey state seats and will end up being really slow.

From Philadelphia, where I hail from, former politicians would jokingly say ,” Vote early and often.”

If you are in Jersey, please vote. We’ll be sitting watching paint dry if you don’t…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Civic Duty

I managed to get up and vote first this morning. Quite an accomplishment for yours truly.

Normally I wait and go after work. Well, today is my late day and it is due to be a chilly ** read sarcasm here** 86 degrees. Now I am under the shade of a leafy maple, sitting at a picnic table. Not a bad way to kill the 15 minutes before polls open.

I have always been an active voter: perhaps it is the history major in me. My theory always has been- don’t participate ,then don’t complain!

Go out today, if you are a Pennsylvanian and vote!
