Celebrate Voting Day


What a gorgeous voting day we are having here! The weather is warm enough to wear short sleeves and a pair of flats, instead of the puffy vests and scarves I had already grown accustomed to. I put Simon in his stroller and we walked with some close friends to our voting place.

I have always believed Voting Day should be made a National Holiday. Give us all the day off! (Except, of course, those who have to work on National Holidays.) Make the big deal of this day that it deserves! Make it easier for everyone to vote, by giving them more time to do it. Let us all go stand in line together, to put in our voice, and then go home and celebrate having that voice.

And, you know, maybe some free coffee at the voting booths wouldn’t hurt either.

Happy Voting Day!

  1. I love your blog Krista! Gorgeous pics. I’ll live vicariously through you for fall foliage because we don’t have the same dramatic change of seasons in Hawaii.

    I agree about election day. I’ve always felt everyone should get the day off. I hate rushing to vote either before or after work, I’ll likely try to do absentee to avoid it. May also get us in the spirit to celebrate pride in our community and our country! Have special I voted today community events.

  2. That would be great! I went to college part-time and have missed a few elections because of classes and homework. It would be a great day to be off and would be very educational for children.
