Because I am a total nerd, I absolutely love elections. I always have. So today is a really exciting day for me, and since I’m one of the metro editors I’ll be spending it all in the newsroom. Which is magical. We have the deadline pushed to around 11, so we’ll see how many results we can get in before then! Oh I am so excited. Check The Daily Universe tomorrow for our coverage.
I mailed my Oregon ballot last week, but I have to say that it wasn’t nearly as exciting as last time. While most may assume I say that because it isn’t a presidential election, I actually attribute it to the fact that my mailbox was way less cool. In 2008 I got to stick my ballot in an awesome London mailbox on my awesome London street. This is me mailing my ballot last time:
This year my mailbox was next to a construction site. Not as cool.
Now, the moral of the story is that you should all go and vote right now! Although it’s probably to late to use a mailbox, so do it in person.
