It’s Time to Vote

I voted before class this morning by dropping off my completed mail-in ballot at my assigned polling place. Got my “I Voted” sticker. Technically, I can drop the ballot off at any polling place in Los Angeles County. But I chose to go to my assigned polling place just in case. It’s only 0.8 mi away, so it was a nice walk. It was at a nice church, and I passed a lot of interesting businesses along the way– including a small mom & pop type of computer store. If I had more time, I’d drop in and check it out. Looking through the door, it looked like they had tons of semi-old computer stuff.

Here’s my updated voting guide.

Last night I walked home in the rain at 4:30 AM and got soaked. From now until the end of the rainy season, I will try to make sure I have an umbrella with me. I’ve placed one in my backpack.

When I got back to my apartment around 5 AM, I pulled out my vote-by-mail ballot and completed it. Wrote in Chuck Baldwin and Darrell Castle. They are write-in candidates in California. Strangely, the website has made this list extremely hard to find on their site (which is a change from what it was before :( ) so here’s a direct link to the PDF of write-in candidates.
