The Big Day

Jeff dropped Harper off and came back so we could vote together. We walked to the polling place and figured out which line we were supposed to be in to register in our new ward and then voted. The whole thing took about 35 minutes. Keegan came along and was excited about it. I have taken him to vote with me in every election since he was born but this is the first one he seemed to sort of understand. It all started during the primaries where a kid in NH can not ignore the fervor. So now I get to keep myself occupied until it is time to go home and overdose on election day coverage. Ah, the gluttony. I think we're having leftovers and sandwiches so we don't have to miss a thing.
