Voting is cool

It’s only a tiny sticker. But wear it proudly.
Voting is a privilege, a right. It is something I have not skipped in nearly 30 years. This morning, I voted in the city council race in my city. I was handed a small card with candidates name printed on it, and a felt pen. It may sound primitive, but all you do is fill in the bubble next to the two candidates (or whatever is the maximum in your city’s race) and you are done.

I watched as the volunteer placed my ballot in the box.
Then she handed me my stub.
And the “I voted” sticker.

Go get yours. The polls close at 8 p.m. tonight.
(In Pasadena, your election day is March 10).
Happy Voting.

About Steve Scauzillo

I love journalism. I've been working in journalism for 32 years. I love communicating and now, that includes writing about environment, transportation and the foothill/Puente Hills communities of Hacienda Heights, Rowland Heights, Walnut and Diamond Bar. I write a couple of columns, one on fridays in Opinion and the other, The Green Way, in the main news section. Send me ideas for stories. Or comments. I was opinion page editor for 12 years so I enjoy a good opinion now and then.
