I voted!

I voted today!

My husband and I went together, and we voted.

No one harassed us, or tried to stop us. No one made it harder for us to vote. No one changed the rules at the last minute so we couldn’t vote. I’d like to say that’s because we live in America, but it’s just because we live in a small town and our volunteers were kindly.

No one looked at me and said “You don’t look American. Come with me.” Because even though I was born in another country, no one questions my nationality. I’d like to say that’s because we live in America, but it’s because I’m white (and people confuse heritage and nationality a lot). You should see me dance.

There were no stickers, but also no wait.

It was a win for democracy.
