The day has finally come

Election Day tomorrow for those in the U.S.  If you haven't voted yet, be sure to do so.  I'm going after work to vote.

I still am getting over the fact that my polling place is in someone's garage.

You see, in California, you can make a little extra money by hosting a polling place.  All you do is provide the space; they provide the staff and the supplies.  I was nervous about going to cast a vote in someone's garage until I researched the law and the process.  It's all strictly above-board.  The whole thing is tightly monitored and is as kosher as a Hebrew National hot dog.  

Seriously, Hebrew Nationals are the bomb of hot dogs.  So for me to say that means I do trust this voting process, at least in this garage.  I don't know about the rest of the country, but I feel I can trust this.  But still, the fact that I'm deciding the fate of the country's government in a garage is still a bit of a mind trip.

There's not a lot of political talk at work.  For most of my coworkers, I can't tell who is going to vote for which candidate.  I also have not disclosed my choice; if asked, I reply that I haven't decided yet.  And to be honest, until I cast that vote, I can change my mind.  Overall, this lack of political discussion isn't a bad thing, as it means there's not a lot of political tension among us.
