Careful Voting

It is nice to get a ballot in the mail. You get to see all the candidates and issues. You get to go over your notes and research in the comfort of your own home. Some states send a sample ballot so you can avoid clerical errors. Check it twice. This is not a year to make mistakes.

If you go to a voting booth, take that sample ballot with you. Take your time. I wish everybody could get a receipt of how they voted. I buy a pack of chewing gum and get a receipt as long as my arm. How hard is it to print a vote receipt? They could print it out on a bigger “I voted” sticker.

No matter how you vote, it is important that you do vote. After you vote, help somebody else vote. It will be worth it.
