Voting (in the ghetto).

I just got to work.

It took me approximately 3 hours to vote, from 6am to 9am in my pajamas. There was one machine for an entire district, that broke down twice. They had to bring a new machine.  Not two, but one...new machine. 

I'm so proud to be an American. We are so much more advanced than the rest of the world. 

Feeling disenfranchised much? There was a riot about to start where I was voting. What about you guys? Smooth sailing? Did I mention that there was only one machine?

and lets not forget that in the same town they mailed spanish translated materials to registered hispanic democrats telling them that election day was on the 29th.

gotta love what they do to heavily minority populated districts.

over in district 67, my part of the island, there was only 1 machine.

being my first time voting in nyc i felt like i was voting in the stoneage aka 1960s with those levers and handles.

my waiting time was 2 hrs. although john leguizamo, his wife, and the other woman judge on americas next top model were in line behind me they still mangaged to get to that machine before i did.

mine was a breeze. I was hoping for some drama or something good. Although, it was pretty emotional for me to mark my circle for Obama, pull out the ballot and match it side-by-side to make sure I was definitely voting for him.

My own little quality assurance of my booth. I'm SO excited!
