"I Voted!" and other things you should shout at people.

5 years ago

It’s Election Day! Did you vote yet? If not…quit reading this blog and go vote!

I cast my ballot this morning and felt all patriotic and proud until I realized that my polling station totally doesn’t give out “I Voted” stickers! Uh, excuse me, but half of the reason I got up this morning and walked through the bitter cold to two different polling stations to cast my presidential vote was so I could be all bragg-y to others on the bus who obviously hate America and didn’t vote yet. 

Ok, so I know you’re in “recovery” mode and all, Hoboken, but let’s get our priorities in order. 

And then I had this embarrassing encounter: 

Me: There aren’t any voting stickers?

Polling person: What are voting stickers?

Me: You know, those stickers that say “I Voted” that you get after voting?

PP, laughing: No, we weren’t even sure if our machines would be up and running in time, so we forgot about the stickers.

Me: Yeah, I guess the hurricane really ruined everything.

PP, realizing I have unbalanced priorities: Uh…yeah. 

Whatever, so I voted and now I guess I’ll just have to randomly shout “I Voted!” at people as I walk down the street. Oddly enough, I probably won’t be the craziest person they encounter today. You've gotta' love NYC.
