It took me 2.5 hours to do it, but I fought through the stiff headwind of long lines and ill-organized election volunteers (God bless ’em) and made my digital mark. I voted.
I hope you vote, too, no matter the inconvenience. Nothing is more essential than voting to the continued vitality of our beautifully imperfect union. Indeed, looking back on what I’ve just written makes me wonder if there is any finer sentence possible in the English language than that simple declaration which proclaims the freedom and the responsibility and the ideals of America: I voted.
