I voted earlier than usual this morning, and there were quite a few mothers there with their daughters. There were a couple of grade-school age girls, at least one middle schooler, and one high schooler. Even the high school girl had a smile on her face as she watched her mother mark her ballot.
With all the ugliness of the election, it’s easy to forget that today is a historic day. My daughter will cast her first vote for President today, and she’ll vote for a woman. It’s enough to make this jaded old man think that there’s a little hope for us all.
Also, since we’re watching Susan B. Anthony’s grave on the front page, here’s what was happening there a few minutes ago. It’s nice to see a line that isn’t the result of voter suppression.
