Roderick and I decided to head out to vote around 10 today. We reasoned that it would be the perfect time because everyone would already be at work and it would be too early for lunch. Well, unlike our friends the Branine's we did not "walk in and walk out." We walked to the end of an enormous line and waited it out. All in all we stood in the line for a little over 2 hours! It took our good friend Ulys almost 3 hours in the same line. (He arrived at 8:20, so maybe our idea of waiting until 10 was a good idea!) What an experience...but hey we still got a chance to exercise our right to vote.
Since I had my handy-dandy camera along, I was able to chronicle our experience. Hey, at least I got 2 hours with my husband....plus these great experiences.
About 45 minutes into the wait...the line in front of us....
Getting Closer... Everyone still waiting, even in the rain! After we finally were able to cast our vote.
It will be interesting to see how this election turns out. I'm so glad we have confidence that our Lord is completely in control no matter what! I was reminded of this morning in Romans 13..."Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God."
After waiting so long, Roderick and I decided it was a Red Barron day! So I'm off to eat some pizza!
