No polling place for me |

No polling place for me

There was no place for me to vote on March 2, so I didn’t. I haven’t missed an election in over 40 years.

My neighborhood, Cascade Shores, has been stripped of a polling place, now requiring us to cast our ballots by mail, which in itself is not a bad thing. But we are further required to sign the outside of the envelope. Wonder what idiot thought that up! Our financial lives are at great risk already without having to put our signatures out there for all those despicable thieves to confiscate.

And you know what the worst part of it is? I no longer have the right to complain about those elected and their performance while in office. Now that’s aggravating and just plain un-American!
