Come to the library

The first cherry pie of the season, even if it was 1/3 store-bought Rainier sweet cherries to augment my early sour ones. We celebrated with a slice after coming home from dropping off our ballots at the local 24 hour box.

Seven states are having primaries Tuesday, including California. Vote!

Man, it felt good walking away from that box, and even more so that car after car was pulling in with people getting out and doing the same, that sense of community, that sense of coming together as Americans, that sense of purpose, whatever our politics. It felt sacred.

I sent a note to the county afterwards to let them know that box was full. It’s a good problem to have, but they needed to service it pronto.

Our primary was May 17th. We took ours to a drop off box by the local library branch. Exercise franchise!
They’ve been doing “vote by mail only” in OR for about 20 years. We registered at the DMV when we moved here. The system here works really well.

That IS a good problem to have! Everybody, vote!
