Today I voted in this historical election. Because of all the presidential hype, I completely forgot until about a week ago, that in Utah we were also voting for Governor. I think I only saw 2 commercials on TV and maybe one billboard for the candidates!
The boys have been very interested (in a little boy way) in the election so since my voting station was at their school, I decided to wait until school was out and have them vote with me. They were very attentive and had opinions. I let them print the ballot and then I cast the final vote. They both thought it was cool and were even given "I voted" stickers.
Oh, while I was there a lady came in wearing a Barack Obama t-shirt. She was told she had to cover up the shirt before she could vote because campaining is not allowed within 150 feet of a polling station. She wasn't really campaigning...just showing her support! Good thing she had a hoodie to cover it up! Isn't that crazy?
Side Note: Guess who ate her first Oreo? It may look like she ate a whole package of them but, no, this is just one! I think she enjoyed every second of it!
