I had of course heard for months upon months that voter turnout was expected to be at an unprecedented high this Election Day. This did not prepare me for the crowd at my polling place at 10 a.m., not to mention the friendly, efficient processing of all of us by the poll workers.
As a former U.S. history and government teacher, I can say with some certainty that I was a bit choked with national pride. Regardless of your vote, you VOTED. All I can think is, democracy, we're doing it right.
And anyway, for the record, I voted Obama and No on Prop 8 (California). I know, you're all so surprised.
