Took my 8 year old to vote today as I have done since he and his brother could walk. Usually, I am in the voting machine in about 3 minutes. Today, it took 40 minutes. My wife took my other son when we got back and it took them only 20. My 8 year old was about as excited as he could get. I think it helped having the long line. He saw neighbors and friend’s parents. He wanted to know what the folks were doing in trying to hand out R and D voting guides (in PA supporters are allowed to stand right by the door and try to influence your vote). He read the ballot and wanted to know who was this Ralph Nader guy and some Bob Barr on the ballot for president.
I confess he helped me push the vote button.
