Early voting in Houston

It took us longer to drive to the early voting site (15 minutes) tonight than it did to vote. We were in and out in 10 minutes.

Differences from the last time we voted, which was for the Democratic primary:
  • twice as many voting booths
  • twice as much staff
  • four times as many signs
  • a few supporters handing out fliers (none at the primary)
  • more smiles

I'm glad to get it done, and hopeful that my candidate (Obama) will win.

Interesting side note - we have been putting out our Vote Democratic sign every morning, and taking it in in the evening, hoping to prevent another tragic sign-stealing episode. This time, when I came home there was an unsolicited Obama/Biden sign in our yard. Makes me wonder. Did the local Democratic boosters just distribute signs, or did our thief feel a little remorse and replace the signs they stole?
