So I bought a hard copy of the Press & Sun-Bulletin on Sunday so I could show my 18 year old son what the actual ballot would look like for his first ever trip to the ballot box – or as we know it, the voting booth. I explained how he would vote on the same machines that his grandmother had voted on – something he may not have been thrilled with.
After watching the news last night and again this morning – the local news, I told him to be sure he had his driver’s license with him. He didn’t want me to go with him and make a big deal out of this so he left the house at a little after 7 am to vote on his way to school. I tried to explain this may not be a great time but the polls had been open for a little over an hour. Off he went!
After talking to my son, no questions about ID. No questions about anything!
