After pressing snooze seven times, I rolled out of bed and headed to my local polling place.
In CA, the issues making the most waves have been Prop 19 (legalization of marijuana) and the gubernatorial race between Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman. Because unlike the movies, Arnold Schwarzenegger cannot "come back" for another term as governor. Yeah, I said it.
To be honest, I kind of expected to see Prop 19 supporters standing outside the elementary cafeteria where we voted, (aka Dancing Cannabis plants, jam bands, etc.) but the only thing I found was a discarded poster. Hopefully that person was more skilled at filling out a ballot than they were at using a Sharpie.
And even though I hadn't been up this early since I was in high school, I managed to cast my ballot and go about my day.
