Election day

Today is election day. Please vote.

We just got back home after voting at Ward 1, District 1-2 in West New York. They had moved the election booth at the last minute from its original location (a school) to the lobby of a high-rise apartment building across the street, so it took us a bit to locate it. But otherwise the process was smooth. As newly minted U.S. citizens, we were voting for the first time, but we found the new electronic voting machines pretty simple to use. They could have however posted clear, step-wise, voting instructions at the top of the machine inside the booth. But they had a helper standing right outside each booth for any questions.

We were in and out in ~20 minutes. I'm not an early morning person, but I think going early was a good lines.
