Theme ~ Elections

Chosen by Lew.

What a most interesting and fascinating election we just had...

Here is the image I used for my header:  my second son Jake voting.  I stood way off to the side and used a telephoto lens so as not to disturb other voters.  Although it's illegal to photograph your ballot, it it not illegal (in my state) to bring a camera into the polling place--but you have to be respectful of judges and their wishes!

Here is a "spring" photo getting ready for primaries--our signs were buried in snow!

An old photo; pardon the watermark...

A sample ballot, unmarked--not illegal!

My third son Danny voting in his first election.

And, my fourth son Thomas voting in his first election.  The handicapped booth was the only one open, and they asked if he didn't mind using it.

I'm so thankful that we have the right and the privilege of going into the voting booth and letting our vote be heard.  I'm thankful that I'm not under duress to vote for any particular candidate, and I'm thankful that no matter what anyone says, my vote is never wasted if I've voted my conscience before God!
