On Halloween we got legally married and voted.
While walking in to the courthouse this morning to be legally married we realized that we were being married on Halloween. Everyone was walking around all decked out in full costume. We didn’t realize we were scheduled to be married on Halloween until we were walking in the courthouse doors and noticing all the dressed up people.
At 9:45 am we were married on paper and official for the insurance that kicks in tomorrow, November 1st. Talk about cutting it close huh? Now our documents are official and our unborn child will have access to prenatal care through N’s insurance. We don’t see ourselves as husband and wife though and I wont be changing my name until we have our actual wedding with the family and friends after the baby is born.
We also enjoyed the cluster-fu@& that is early voting today. We headed to our local library at 12:30pm to get in line for the early voting that began at 1pm. When we arrived the line was already stretching the entire length of the library and was almost out the front door. Today was the last day for early voting and we did want to try getting it done so we could avoid the chaos of election day.
In Indiana voter turn out is expected to be record breaking on November 4th, 2008. Many are speculating that election day voting will be a headache because of lack of preparation for the record voter turn out among a number of other things. Anything to avoid that is good right? Even if you have to wait forever just to vote early…
To make a long story short we waited 2 hours from the time we joined the line until we got to vote but we did it, we cast our votes! I am ready for a nap!
N and I are ready to be done with all of this election stuff. The ads are getting especially annoying in Indiana. For those of you in the states, did you take advantage of early voting for the election or will you just vote on Tuesday, November 4th 2008?
