Civic duty!

Well, alea jacta est as it were.  The ballot is in the box, and I was really encouraged to see a line at my polling place.  I've been voting there for years and I've never had to wait in line once, but this morning people were wrapped around the building waiting for their turn.

We'll see what happens, but I'm hoping the polls will have been right for once.  I considered voting the opposite of how I actually want things to go to try and fake out my electoral curse.  I've never voted for the winning candidate ever in a Presidential election.  But in the end I figured if I tried that fate would probably punish me ironically by having my one vote be the one that sent McCain over the top (of course here in California that's not going to be a problem).

So, if you haven't voted yet, get out and cast your ballot (unless you're either voting for McCain or Yes on Prop H8...then stay home).
