Writer's Block: Secret Ballot

It's hard to ignore the fact that today is Election Day in the U.S. If you went to the polls today, tell us what it was like. Long line? Free stickers? Hanging chads? We want the details.

I was super excited to vote. I felt like my vote would count for the first time, really. New York, my home state, is never a battleground state but Virginia is this year. As a second year resident of Virginia, I was ready to make my vote count. I went around 1pm and waited in line long enough to text my mom and then I was on my way to the touch screen. It was real easy. Vote for president, senator and congressman (who was running unopposed). I'm not registered with a party but I voted all Democratic. I think it's the first time I've ever done that, voted with all one party. I was in and out in under 20 minutes. It was rather fun.
