I've dutifully taken my kids to every Election Day since we've gotten
them, but this was their first presidential election. Not
surprisingly, since we are a swing state, turnout was high. In fact,
we arrived at the polling places right as they opened at 7, and didn't
actually vote until an hour later, as there were a good 50 to 60
people ahead of us. By then, Jada and Aaron had burned through their
school snack and were really antsy. But we pulled our levers and
headed off to school before any major meltdowns occurred.
