tonight i voted after class, i didn't get to the polling station until 6pm with only one hour left to vote. i expected line ups because lots of people would be getting off work at that hour, and my anxiety skyrocketed as i prepared to stand in a gymnasium with a bunch of strangers as i reached for the handle of the door. i step inside, handed my card to a woman that told me where to go. the gym was almost empty. no line ups, no fireworks. i was out before the song on my discman even finished playing.
i still feel so lucky to get to vote and i'm always confused about why there aren't line ups. then i realize that not a lot of people feel so excited and lucky as i do.
over and out.
