No, I'm not talking about the temporary closure of the Fairbanks Burger King.
I think this picture says it all.
Apparently I wasn't the only person at 1:20 PM on a Friday that wanted to vote. Check out this line.
When I walked into the State Building the security guard looks at me
"Down the hall, around the corner".
I look at him quizzically.
"Why yes. Thank you!"
The line took maybe 5 minutes to go through. I had my ID ready, the elections staff looked up my record, confirmed my physical address, and printed out a sheet for me to sign. Then I got my ballot and voted. This is the first election I have only voted for one political party. I'm not comfortable with that. Voting for judges is always fun, and I do read the elections pamphlets (as anyone who's looked at Jeri's blog should know). I voted for Judge Funk more because I enjoy his show on KUAC than because of anything in the election booklet. I almost had jury duty in his court once, and tried to use that as a reason why I might be unqualified to be a juror. They tossed me for other reasons. Heh.
This looks to be a historic election, especially here in Alaska considering all the problems with Don and Ted, and La Sarah's national candidacy. I can't wait to see how it turns out, but now I've done my part. Let the end game commence.
