Well here we are - Election day 2008". No matter was happens, and who ever gets elected - we are making history!!
I have to be at work at 8:30 am so I figured I would be fine if I made it to the polls to vote at 7am - OH NO....When my daughter and I got there (this is her first year voting too and she is excited!!) the line had to be over 200 people!!! I have voted every year there has been elections for ANYTHING, and not once have I ever seen this kind of turnout!!! I was in AWE!! I stood in line until almost 9am and when I finally got to the poll to vote, they were saying that the line was over 300 people...mind you we live in one of the smallest counties in the state of Virginia!!
The money that is being spent to had out this literature....and these buttons.....etc...could have gone to something better...like the hungry, homeless, helping people who need heat or help paying their mortgage....This frustrates me also.... I know we all on budget101 could help them with some great ideas on how to be frugal!!!
Well I voted and made it to work....I hope everyone has a safe day out there. I guess we will see what our future holds in a few hours...
God Bless all!!
