2. My polling location is around the corner from where I live

I could've voted early; I've done it in the past.

But I enjoy the routine miracle of strolling through my neighborhood to my local poll and placing my vote on election day. I see my neighbors. I chat it up with the poll staff and let them know I appreciate them doing their part. My vote helps to validate their efforts.

I just savor the Norman Rockwell American-ness of it all. And I pay tribute to those who've lost their lives making it possible.

I am a convicted felon. There were years that I couldn't vote because I was in prison. I'm lucky to live in a state that permits me to vote.
