1. I posted a thread earlier.

I hope that it adds to your narrative.

It got only one kick, but it was still a heartfelt post.

BRB, I will post my previous content here in support of yours.

Here ya go:

Now, I should inform folks that I live in an extremely rural area with more national forest than habitable area. I had to drive just under 15 miles to get to my township hall. Along the way I passed another township hall which was open for voting, just not mine. There are not many paved roads around here and there is no direct route to my township hall from my house because of the intervening forest, hence, my long, circuitous drive to the polls.

This area is very conservative so being the 27th Democrat voting today did not alarm me much. I should have glanced at the top GOP ballot in the stack of ballots to see its serial number. Sadly, I did not think of that until I was already driving home.

Starting in November, I will be voting absentee. The drive is worth it, but is a pain in the ass. I am old enough that I qualify for absentee status. Should have done it years ago.

BTW, I did not show a picture ID and they did not ask for one in spite of MI law. I showed my voter registration card.

Anyway, Bernie got my vote.

Vote early! Vote often!


It's not much. But it is what I had at the time.

Happy to support your thread. It is the story that makes the argument. It is how one wins.
