All grown up

The first time she went to the polls she was in a snuggli. Then a stroller, then a little girl hding my hand.

Today she cast her own ballot. If you look closely you can see she has gotten her sticker. Do you get stickers outside the USA?

Our polling place was an elementary school. That is pretty usual. And it was really busy which is unusual for a Primary.

November will be here before you know it!

So pretty!!Love her outfit,too!

We don't get stickers. Does it say "I Voted"?? I think I remember getting something like that a long time ago.

I read that in the wild old days, before 1840 perhaps, Polling places handed out beer and barbecue. They don't do it anymore for fear of being accused of influencing the vote, too bad, I think.

We find voting locally quite a social thing. The polling station is only 400 yards away but we meet so many people there or en route it takes us ages. Nice May evening, usually, too.

No stickers here alas but yes voting is often in primary( elementary) schools .
love the stylish outfit for voting .
Did they get their ice cream yet ??!!

we have two sets of elections this year Local councils and Police and Crime commissioners in May and the EU referendum in June. Voting can quite often be a social time as mylodon says.
