Sunshine aside, one of the big things we gave up in moving here is the ability to pick our presidential candidates. The Washington primary election isn't for another two weeks! Boo-hoo! Not that this is supremely important to me given that I'm a registered Libertarian, but still, I've ALWAYS participated in Super Tuesday.
It's actually my goal to NEVER EVER miss a national election, not my Whole Entire Life. When I get to be 100 years old, I want to look back on a perfect 82-year voting history and remember fondly the 82 years of bitching and moaning I've been allowed to do by virtue of all those votes.
Anyway, have fun at the polls today!
