Last night an hour before the polls closed, the husband and I walked the dogs and I popped in to vote. Really, it's the best time to go...no lines at all which was NOT the case in the morning.
Here's some things I learned about voting in NYC:
1) They don't give out "I voted" stickers. Aww. It's the little things, really.
2) And I've never voted via levers and toggles. Seriously, check this out (photo taken from this blog):
Are you kidding me? How old school is that? First you pull that red lever all the way to the right to start voting. Then you flip the toggle/switch thing to check who you are voting for. Finally you pull the red thing back to the left to cast your vote. Wow. I'm glad I watched this guy's video (he's from my 'hood) before I went so I would know how it works.
Regardless of which candidate won, I am just excited to see what the next four-year term brings.
Even the puppies are excited (we were non-partisan in picking out the toy...they just liked the elephant..):
