I Voted! (Early)

Monday I voted early at San Francisco City Hall.

If something happens to me between now and November 8th I can go knowing that I voted yes to the first woman President and no to the GOP’s politics of smear and fear.

Below is a shot of the sign outside of City Hall.

It’s in four of the languages spoken by the Americans who live in here.

  1. I expected to have voted by now, but there are so many measures on the ballot that it’s going to take a little more time to research them. Thank you for voting and for the right person. Well done.

    Back when Reagan was up for reelection my mom was hospitalized for cancer in October. One of the first things she said when she got her room was that she needed an absentee ballot. Absentee voting was not easy back then. In fact, it was a long absurd process.

    I said she asked for an absentee ballot, but that’s not true. She demanded it. She made sure she voted in every election. Sadly Mom died before we got her the ballot and since she died it obviously wouldn’t have counted anyway.

    When someone tells me they don’t vote I think of my mom and I’m outraged. I have absolutely no patience for that attitude whatsoever. Thank you for pushing us out here to be sure to get our votes in. My mom would have liked you.

    1. Your Mom sounds like a strong person and a good Mother. Too many people have died for this right for me to shrug it off. Every time I feel too lazy to vote I remember that Doctor King continued his work even when it became clear to him that he would be killed for it.

    1. I remember in the 80’s when people claimed politics had no effect on their lives and I thought…umm…every social structure we have is a political. I may be wrong but our world for the past half century has been shaped by the people who didn’t vote or who decided to throw their vote away on a spoiler.

      1. I totally agree, which is why it is so important to make a well-informed educated decision when choosing who to vote for..however, politics seems to be more about characters and figureheads than actual political stuff.

      2. Yes… 🙂 I think she’s pretty cool, and I would vote for her if I were American. Donald Trump scares me… He reminds me of a very unpleasant man I used to work for… thank you for the link and as always, I appreciate your posts explaining US politics

    1. Good job. I usually like the tradition of going to the polls on election day but even in San Francisco there are concerns about Trump followers coming in from other parts of the State to disrupt our polling places so an early vote is a safe vote.
