vote with a buddy
hurray for democracy!

following mentoring with amy this evening, she and i had a "i hate making posters" poster making party (did you get that) for the take back the house event. we plan to have another this weekend where we actually don't make posters and hide all paper, markers and any other crafty materials and i don't know what we will do, but it will be so much better than making posters.

anyway...back to how wonderful the (18th 19th, 20th, 21st?) amendment is, which grants women the right to vote. we then journeyed (in the recent snow!) to central elementary school where i voted "yes, yes, yes" on the school district referendum. when i signed my name the lady said that she had just looked me up for someone who wondered if i was registered - they needed me to vouch for them. "that's kinda weird," i thought.

we found out amy was to go to (my alma mater) J.W. Smith Elementary to vote. back in the car we jammed to u2 - joshua tree. amy got registered, voted and she dropped me off at home. everyone should vote with a buddy - it is so much more fun.

so, when i got home my friend brent was waiting for me. mystery solved - it was he who needed to be vouched for. but, it was 7:35 - the polls closed at 8:00. back to central elementary.

brent (thats him on the left in the orange coat - he made the paper!) had been waiting all day to vote. he lives with his grandma and has never registered. so, after being turned away, he went home to wait for his grandma (who was out with her extended family and whose cell phone was turned off) so she could vouch for him. wait, wait, wait...leave for work from 5-7.

after work someone suggested he try using his student loan bill, but he was turned away a second time - but not before he looked me up in the registered voter list. he went straight to my house to wait. (and here i was taking my sweet time getting home). chels had no idea where i was (she even called the cs lab and amy's roommate).

brent's third attempt was finally successful - the polling people laughed with us at the whole situation.

brent wins the award for most dedicated voter. (by the way this happened to him last year too, but he didn't get to vote.)
