Guess what? It's FREE to vote!

Posted May 7, 2012

The first freebie of the day is your ballot! Don't forget to vote today!

I don't want to know who you actually voted for, but feel free to post if you voted in this election. How many civic-minded couponers do we have out there?!

I'll be headed to the polls after carpool. See you there!

    I voted late last night, too busy all day to get there :( BUT even though the school was holding a function at the same time and there was hardly any parking available, I was in/out in minutes.

    I was the 1,161 person to vote at my polling place. And I thanked everyone that worked at the polls that day, I've done it in the past and it's tedious and mostly thankless work.

    Looking at the turnout on the news, 37%, sad really.

    Thanks for posting that you all voted! You should all be rewarded with extra coupons in your Sunday paper for doing your civic duty!

    Was able to squeeze in voting around 7:15 after a very busy day! Was number 815 at my polling place.

    The collective age of the Polling Officials at my voting station easily tops 500. There was 1 official under the age of 80. I dislike shouting my name and address (several times) in order to vote. (almost makes me want to skip voting!!) I'll have to remember to vote early next time to avoid this.

    Not Now

    Any old people in your family?
    Do you plan on getting old?
    Good luck.

    Voted bright and early at 7:00; no lines! I too have noted the age of the volunteers at the polls, primarily older folks. It makes me a little sad that most of us don't have time to serve likewise, but then I'm extra thankful for those who are able to do so!

    The girls both recently turned 18, so sometime between when they're both home from school and dinner, we're all heading out to vote.

    My mission for the afternoon is a list of all the ballot initiatives and individual elections. My husband can tell you how he wants to vote if you discuss the issues, but he's brain injured so when it comes time to just fill in a bubble on a sheet he blanks out and has no clue what he's voting for.
