I Miss Voting ...

... in person.

We mailed our ballots in several days ago, because we wanted our votes counted LOUD and PROUD and EARLY.

There's at least one proposed measure on the Oregon ballot that makes me feel panicky, so we didn't procrastinate with our ballots this year.

It is absolutely BUCKETING down rain here, however, so maybe I don't miss voting in person that much.

And yes, I've already been out in the downpour with my two dogs, who are usually straining at their leashes to get outside and check their neighborhood pee-mail.

Not this morning. We stepped onto the back porch, they observed the deluge, and stood there looking appalled. (Well, maybe I'm anthropomorphizing.) But they certainly moved reluctantly into the drenching rain. (I should take a photo of them in their little red raincoats.)

VOTE.
