  • Mood:

I voted!

Despite the best efforts of the MBTA to delay my train home, not to mention my town having moved my precinct's polling place to an elementary school with totally inadequate parking for the purpose, I made it in time to vote in today's Presidential primary election.

Frankly, I'll be happy with either Hilary Clinton or Bernie Sanders as President. I voted for Clinton mostly for tactical reasons, figuring that there cannot possibly be any undiscovered dirt left to be dug up on her. Sanders hasn't been in the national spotlight nearly as long; if there is any muck to be flung at him, it'll be flung for the first time during the general election campaign.

It was tempting to cross over to the Republican side to vote against Donald Trump and Ted Cruz - but there wasn't anybody to vote for on that ballot. (Or, at least, nobody I'd want as President.)

The poll workers said turnout was pretty good. The vote-counting machine was showing just over a thousand ballots, which would be not at all bad for just my precinct - OTOH, if that was supposed to be three precincts worth, I wouldn't be as impressed. (Last I checked, there are around 2200 or so voters per precinct here.)
