Today's the big day! Don't forget to vote! D and I got up at the crack of dawn to hit the polls just after they opened at 7 a.m. Our first step was registering to vote, which you can do on the day of election here in Wisconsin. (I had tried to register to vote last month, but upon calling our town clerk, I was advised that it would be easiest to just register day-of -- I think the other option would have been to stop by her house to register.)
Our polling location wasn't very busy (a benefit of living in a small town), and voting was a breeze. I was slightly bummed that I didn't get a "I Voted Today!" sticker. So, after picking up a latte in town, I stopped off at Zippy's, the local bakery/pizza shop to (hopefully) get a patriotic donut. Surprisingly, no red, white, and blue be-sprinkled donuts were to be found. So I bought a chocolate cake donut, headed to Trig's (our local grocery store chain) to buy some patriotic sprinkles, and then doctored up my donut once back at home.
