… but that won’t stop me from sharing my Washington voting experience, and a few photos, with you.
I cast my ballot this morning in the Petworth neighborhood, where I reside. The line was long — I waited for about an hour and a half — but without incident. There was no ID check, no signs or instructions to guide me and no privacy — I filled out my paper ballot in plain sight of everyone present. But the mood was generally upbeat.
Given the demographics of my neighborhood and the conversations I overheard, I predict the precinct will go 98 percent for Sen. Barack Obama.
Some photos from the polls:
