I just exercised my right to vote. Literally.
I walked the four blocks or so to my polling place on a sunny, November afternoon with the temperature in the upper 50s. Not bad. Reminds me of my walks to the bus stop. The best part was crunching through the bright yellow leaves that layered the sidewalk beneath some of the late autumn bloomer trees.
And I also got to participate in democracy, casting my vote in the St. Paul mayoral and school board elections.
