Wednesday last, I took my absentee ballot to the county election board to cast my vote.
It took longer to find a place to park than it did to actually vote.
I went in and was assisted by the kindest older gentleman.
He first asked me if I was comfortable with everything about my ballot inside the sealed envelope.
After I assured him I was, he explained my ballot would go in the box, he would stamp the date on a receipt, then give me “the coveted I voted sticker”.
Then he asked me if I’d like to drop my ballot in the box.
Would I ever!
By sliding my envelope into that box, I exercised my 19th Amendment right and responsibility during the hundredth anniversary.
Votes for Women
I am eternally grateful to the women who came before me. The ones who fought tirelessly and selflessly to make this a reality. My voice is heard because of them.
Because of these women, these suffragettes, these community organizers, these mothers and daughters and sisters and wives, I have the right to vote.
I believe that right is also my responsibility.
The ultimate girl power!
I purposefully wore this mask in celebration of their hard work.
If you grew up in the 1970s and 80s like me this School House Rock song will be familiar to you:
I’m sharing these voting vids because I’m amused by them. I’m also acutely aware of the importance of this election. I’m very concerned for my country. This is a pivotal moment to be an American. I know there are people on either side of the line…some folks have a D after their name, some folks have an R after their name. Some folks aren’t sure what comes after their name. Please just vote. Especially if you’re a woman. Do you know what the women who came before us had to endure so we could have the right to vote? They earned us the right. We owe them the responsibility.
Joss got together “just a shit ton of famous people” to talk about the importance of voting. So get out there and vote.
But first, watch this:
Thank you, RDJ for letting us know that “Mark’s gonna have his dick out.”

I don’t care about which side of the line you’re on. I don’t care if you have an R or a D behind your name. It doesn’t even matter that I know which way my vote will go.
Regardless how you vote, watch this little bit of funny, and remember to #votehoney
Oh how I laughed!
I loved this show so much.I miss this show. These ridiculously selfish people are a part of my culture. I love to quote them whenever possible.
And I’ve always thought Karen Walker is my spirit animal. Even if I don’t exactly agree with her politics…
