I thought I’d be in India on November 4th. Circumstances changed and I’m still in NYC, but I had already asked for an absentee ballot.
A couple of weeks ago, I filled in the ballot and sent it in to ensure it is counted.
Absentee voting is just not as fulfilling as going to the polling station and pulling the lever. To make myself feel better, I am giving myself an “I Voted” sticker I would have gotten if I went to the polls instead.
Let’s hope Wednesday the 5th is a new day of hope, promise and progress!
