Most cities in the United States have what’s called early voting, which means you can vote before the normal election day, which is usually the first Tuesday in November.
This year, its Tuesday, November 3rd and this election is very important.
The United States will either have a new president or the same one.
October 24 was New York’s turn for the start of early voting and like me, many people took advantage of it and waited in line, sometimes more than 2 hours to exercise their right to vote.
As I had absentee ballots for myself, aunt and cousin, I was able to drop my ballots into a dropbox inside the voting place, although it would have been nice if I and a couple of other people who stood in line for almost 3 hours had been given this need to know information earlier.
Luckily I had one of those stadium chairs to sit on while i waited my turn, and discussed politics in the United States with other voters waiting in line also.
Finally, i got to put the ballots in the dropbox.
This was all worth it.
My grandparents who were born and raised in Waxhaw County, North Carolina and Lancaster, South Carolina, couldn’t even vote.
Even though the lines were long, I didn’t mind doing it.
Too many people died trying to vote, it’s the least the Sports Diva can do.
