Election Day/Election Gloves

The Election Gloves by Jessica Rosner

Happy Election Day!

One of my few complaints about life over here in Washington State involves Election Day, actually. There are no polling places! You don’t “go vote”, you put your ballot in the mail. I suppose some people may think this is the height of convenience, but I miss pulling the lever. I enjoyed standing in the curtained/secluded area and making my wishes known, bringing shape to them by the act of marking my ballot. Putting the ballot in the mail feels like paying the oil bill.
