Let's guess how many people have a donkey and an elephant image on their blog today

Today marked the first time I have ever voted in my life. I imagined it being an all-day extravaganza, what with an expected record voter turnout here in Arlington, Va. Rachel spent three hours doing it on Saturday - and she was voting early. And Ryan stood in a line wrapped around a middle school for two hours this morning.
I walked in and 45 minutes later I had a sticker on my chest proudly stating, "I voted in Arlington."

i'm going to admit that i didn't vote, because i forgot to register in salt lake, and it snowed today so i couldn't get to north logan. i know i should brave anything for democracy right? i guess the one-year-old kind of makes the difference.

The lines around here were all over the news this morning. I'd like to report I walked in, received a ballot, voted, turned in that ballot and walked out within 10 minutes.
boo-yeah.

I'm glad you got an "I voted" sticker. As you will see tonight, mine says, "FUTURE voter" I know I look like I'm 13, but did they have to give me a sticker that promotes the misconception?
