Today marked a first for me. I rode my bike to my polling place. I've walked (pushing newborn baby Judah in the stroller) and driven, but this was my first time biking. It was, also, my first time voting using a provisional ballot. Kind of annoying, since I thought I had re-registered when we moved, but I guess I didn't. At least, from what I've read, my vote will count like normal. Did you vote today?
I heard the poll workers talking about they had more people turn out today than for the last presidential election (at least at that polling place) because of the proposition to legalize marijuana. Interesting.
Today I'm thankful for the right to vote.
(Off topic, but tomorrow we're getting kale, beets, and fennel in our CSA box. Do you have any recipes using either of these? Please share! I have no idea what to do with them!)
