Voting in a small town

The wonderful things about voting in a small town:
  1. People wave to you and smile when you are walking towards the building and when you depart,
  2. The senior citizens who smile, ask your name, cross it off the list, and monitor the system,
  3. The children playing in the school classrooms waiting for parents,
  4. The paper ballet and pens - that can be replaced (and therefor destroyed) if you make a mistake,
  5. The air of calmness, thoughtfulness, and respect that permeates,
  6. That each person who is there when you are, does not advocate for a candidate, instead there is the camaraderie that yes we all voted together - we love our country.
