It's not storming the beaches at Normandy, but in-person voting in this time of COVID-19 is nothing to sneeze at
So today was the Florida Primary Election Day. Given that my polling station is just a few blocks away fom Chez Boca, I decided to walk. Less to save fuel and more to just get out of the house for something other than food. Well, that, and to see what the protocol might be for the general election in November in these pandemic times. The walk there wasn't bad,
It was not crowded at all. There were a total of seven people at the polling station—five people staffing the station, and two voting (and I'm including myself in that count of two). It was pretty much the same as every other time I voted, with the exception of mask wearing, and keeping the pen used to mark the ballot.
I'm registered as an independent voter, so the ballot wasn't that large for me. Seven races, one supervisor of Elections, three judges, one school board district and two parks and recreation elections! I didn't even know those were a thing!
You might not want to read this post. If you read beyond the title, it's on you, not me. You have been warned. Have a nice day.
On my walk to the polling station, I saw a sign posted in someone's front yard that I found amusing enough to take a picture to post on this blog. As I resumed my walk, I began to have second thoughts on the sign—it brings up questions about the 1ST and 2ND Amendments and could be considered imflamatory in a country deeply divided along partisan lines, so I decided against posting the image.
Then I thought Why am I censoring myself? This is my blog! I can post what I want! I'm not forcing anyone to read this, and there are plenty of other pages out there one can read.
So, without further ado, the sign:
Don't say I didn't warn you.
There's not much else to say but, enjoy.
Oh wait, there is … he's going off the rails on a crazy train.
