If You Don't Vote...Don't Complain.
That's what my sweet wife reminded me this morning. Since I like to complain, I figured I better vote.
I already had my absentee ballot but I hadn't yet mailed it in. So I marked my ballot at home and rode my bicycle about a 1.5 miles to Saratoga City Hall, the only polling place in Saratoga for this primary.
I was surprised no one was waiting in line to vote and just one person was in a voting booth. That's the fewest people voting I've seen. Perhaps there was just a lull while I was there, or perhaps people mailed absentee ballots, that was my original intention.
Since I had already filled-in my ballot all I needed to do was seal and sign the envelope, and put it in the brown box. I think the brown box was for laggards like me--those who had unmailed absentee ballots.
I can even track my ballot with a new QR code. Pretty high tech.
The multi-lingual population in Santa Clara County can be deduced from the 'Vote Here' sign. Does anyone know what language "Bumoto Dito" is? I like the rada tat tat sound. The other three are easy: Spanish, Vietnamese and Mandarin.
