Adventures in Voting
"Today is election day!" I realized as I slowed to make the turn into the parking garage at work. So I turned off the signal and kept driving. I hadn't looked at the voter's guide, because I hadn't re-registered at my new address yet, but Andrew from work had suggested that I go vote in my old district, at least on the national elections and the initiatives.
So I did. But it was gone.
I used to vote in the leasing office for my old apartment complex up in Redmond, before I moved, but it wasn't a voting center anymore. Or a leasing office. After a bit of searching, though, I found the new leasing office and fortunately someone there knew where to go to vote.
