I just got back from the local public elementary school where I voted in the hotly contested Virginia primary. Just kidding, it's not hotly contested at all. There are only two candidates on the ballot -- Mitt Romney, who will win, and Ron Paul. As your resident (if lonely) libertarian, you should not be surprised that I pulled the lever -- or turned the dial, actually -- for the congressman from Texas.
And it felt great to be voting again. I tried voting a few times during my dozen-plus years in Washington, D.C. But elections there are meaningless -- unless you're a Democratic primary voter, your vote really doesn't count. And in 2008, D.C. went over 90% for President Obama.
Anyway, my report from the polls is that they were desolate. I forgot to ask what number voter I was, but apart from the five poll workers, I was the only human around. No one was there before I came and no one was there as I left.
How about the rest of the Ricochet universe out in Super Tuesday lands? Did you have to fight for parking to register your vote? Did you have fun? Do you have pictures? Are you organizing viewing parties for tonight to watch the results?
