I voted

I wasn't going to bother.   



Then I thought about adding NJ Governor Chris Christie's name to the ballot.  


Then I thought about what things were most important to me in considering each candidate's qualifications and track record.  



I decided to vote.  Didn't get a sticker, though.

May the best man win.  And I really hope, in my lifetime, that I will have the chance to say "May the best woman win".  ;-)

  1. I'm really glad you voted, Barbara. We have early voting in Tennessee, and we voted the first day it was possible!

  2. I'm going after dinner. I will be able to cook in the oven tonight. It's so good to have power again.

    I would vote for Christie if he was running :)

    I took a quick look at your other posts. It's still to raw for me. It's hard to look without feeling ill. My heart goes out to all who are still suffering.

    xo,
    Dee

  3. Barbara, so glad you voted. I wasn't going to bother either, but this afternoon I had a change in heart. I have voted in every presidential election since I was 18, but I have gotten so frustrated with both candidates and both parties during this election. Gov. Christie has picked up a lot of admirers recently!

  4. That would be cool to see a woman win. I'm glad to hear that it was possible to get out and vote, though tough I am sure.

  10. I am a very big Chris Christie fan. I voted this afternoon. I heard that there were very long lines this morning. No matter who wins, I am always so honored and privileged to have a choice.

    Big Hugs,

  11. I did too! I'm very honored to be a citizen of this country and have an opportunity to participate in its democracy.
    And I got three stickers! One for myself and two for my boys!

  12. I sure am glad you voted...too many men and women have fought and died for the right to vote. We don't ever want to let them down by not voting. :)
    My man didn't win and I am very worried about the state our country might be facing....well, the people chose....

  14. I'm glad you voted. I know that right now, you see how real things are out there in the aftermath of Sandy.

    I would like to see us raise up some great female leaders. I've looked on the horizon, and I'm seeing them.

  15. Glad you were able to get out and vote. I know it was hard for many on the east coast to get to the polls!

  18. Glad you voted! I didn't have to wait at all to vote. I do admire that Gov. Christie was able to put partisan politics aside for the good of all his people. Oh, and the best man did win.

  19. My mother was a city clerk, and I think I would have heard some lightning from heaven if I didn't vote. I took my 18 year-old to vote for the first time. We celebrated by going out to lunch afterwards. On the way there I told him that people have died so we are free to vote. We should have studied up on a few issues and people, but we voted. Glad you voted too. Joni

  20. Barbara, I too hope to see a woman as president. I voted yesterday and then sat up till about midnight to see the returns, then was keyed up. I knew that would happen whichever the results. Should have just gone to bed.

  21. I hope for that opportunity, too! :)

  22. Yep, I voted and did my part. Maybe one day we will have a woman president

  23. Dearest Barbara,
    I did follow about this important news, my friend. I admire the system in your country that you can vote directly for your president, which we cannot.

    Oh, I am for 'woman prime minister' in Japan(*^_^*)

    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  24. I hope for the same thing, Barbara! I think a womna would be able to do as good as, or better, job running this country and I hope I live long enough to see it!
