I voted today.

Just a quick stop by the blog to say that you still have time left to vote! Polls don’t close in Ohio until 7:30. I voted this morning and despite lots of rumors of long waits in my area we had no wait at all. Of course I didn’t stand in line to use the little voting privacy booths. I just filled in my bubbles on the bleachers. But I’m impatient and I don’t really care if random strangers see that I voted for Obama.

Yes. I voted for Obama.

I was going to write a post about that but never quite got my words together… I think Cool Cleveland summarized it best when they said this:
“More than a new leader, we need a new approach to solving our problems”
Exactly. The same approach and the same way of thinking are going to result in the same outcome. So tonight I hope the entire country turns blue!

Whoever you are voting for, though, this is definitely the election to participate in. And if you do vote here’s some shiny buttons for your blog:

And one really political one:

Yeah for democracy!

Also yeah for a night spent watching election coverage and knitting! Oh yeah - now that knitting doesn’t make me puke there has been lots and lots and lots of knitting….

Edited to Add:

I want that CNN map wall. That looks like the funnest and geekiest thing ever.

Edited to Add (at 9:40):Whoot!!! Blue Ohio!!!! Best news so far tonight. And they haven't even counted Cuyahoga County yet!

    My daughter asked for pig tails this morning. Before we saw video of the Obama family voting this morning. Little Sasha was also sporting pig tails. :-)

    Glad you voted and can knit again!
