Please Vote!

I hope everyone who reads this and is a United States citizen will vote in the election today. Your vote is important, and it is your duty. It is a privilege to vote in our democratically governed country, and I hope you take it seriously.

My husband and I have already filled out our mail-in ballots and sent them in. We did that so we could volunteer to work as election judges all day (6 AM - 8 PM!!) today at our local polling place. I'm looking forward to getting the chance to slap "I Voted!" stickers on many, many chests!

Also today, the third installment in my description of my three days of jury service for a trial appears on Leslie Budewitz's blog, Law and Fiction. Serving on a jury when called is another important civic duty, but in my case, it was also great research for my mystery fiction writing!

Hi, Beth. I'm stopping by via Pat's CIR post today.

I have my ballot filled out and ready to drop off! I think early voting is too anticlimactic for me :-)
