Voting in Precinct 2, Ward 2

Vote, and let your voice be heard!

My voting station was at the parish center at Our Lady of Good Voyage. There was a small line, but it moved quickly.

It’s a pretty big ballot, so it doesn’t really fit in the folder provided for voting privacy, but I don’t think we need to worry…

Thanks to all the folks who work at the polls to keep the democratic machine running clean and fair!

No matter who wins these elections, there will be a lot of upset people afterwards.  Let’s hope we can all be understanding and respectful of each other, even if we strongly disagree…  NPR’s “This American Life” has an interesting podcast on this topic this week. Although I am pretty frank about my principles in public (I hope), I avoid talking too much in public about for whom I vote.  I don’t want that to get in the way of my ministry, or to be interpreted as my endorsing specific candidates on behalf of the Church. I have to be able to talk to people of all political persuasions, and some people just can’t see past political differences. Fortunately, my friends include people representing a wide range of opinions. I hope it stays that way.
