Early voting started today, and after a monthly gunfight at the club, and after going to a funeral for a family member, Belle and I took the opportunity to participate in democracy. We voted.
It was the first time I had ever seen my own name on a ballot so I went ahead and voted for myself. I'll have to check the precinct totals after the primary election to see if Belle voted for me. She says she did, but she was in the voting booth alone. Primary election day is October 12th, but early voting is really easy. The voting commissioner there tells me that they've had a steady stream of people coming through all day long.
