Let’s Go Vote… and Then Go To Happy Hour!

I know my experience voting in rural Kansas is different than it is for most people in the United States. Here's a little glimpse into what happened today.

Briles School House

Here's where we vote.. It's a little one room school house.  It's also where The Man and I had our wedding reception.

There were probably 5 people in there when we arrived, three working and two voting.

Here's what it looks like on the inside.

My ballot.. (not filled out)  I was ready for these votes…

But the back.. I had no idea about this bad boy! I should have brought my reading glasses!

Kansas Motto, Kansas Seal


#1 Exercising her right to vote.. 🙂

The other monkey's waiting…

While we were there, a photographer from Getty Images was taking photos. I chatted with her briefly outside and #5 yelled from the car; "MOM! Come ON! We're gonna miss Happy Hour!"  I don't know if she heard him or not, but I quickly explained that I had promised them I would take them to Sonic Happy Hour after we voted..

See? Drinks from Sonic!

(Don't worry about #2 he wouldn't look normal no matter how many times I told him)

#6 got his first Sonic cherry limeade! 🙂

My Civic Duty…

Just in case you've been living in a hole… It's Election Day! I've talked about where I vote before, but I thought I'd share the quaint one room school house that is my polling place.

This is the Briles School House… not only where I vote.. but also where I had my wedding reception.

I asked how busy it was today.. they said there were people waiting outside at 6:30AM. When I arrived at 4:30 the place was pretty much dead.

We did receive snappy new voting boothes this year. In years past we had these cool boothes with fabric closures on the back. They looked pretty old school. The ladies working were not crazy about these new booths.

I was surprised how FULL our ballots were this year. They were FRONT and BACK full.. top to bottom.


I took photos the whole time I was there. I had a woman look at me like I was nuts.. so I explained to her that I blog. She muttered "Who would want to read about what she does all day?" I just smiled and thought.. "WHO WOULD want to read about what I do all day!"

Hey guess what… I voted 🙂 and I hope you did too!
